Wyoming Pedestrian Killed in Hit-&-Run, Driver at Large
The Wyoming Highway Patrol is searching for a hit-and-run driver who they say fatally struck a pedestrian on the Wind River Indian Reservation late Monday night.
The crash happened sometime before midnight in the 200 block of Ethete Road, northeast of Fort Washakie School.
According to a fatality crash summary, 30-year-old Wyoming resident Wilford Hill was walking west when a black sedan hit him, killing him.
"The suspect vehicle fled without stopping," the summary reads.
Sgt. Jeremy Beck says due to the debris that was left at the scene, troopers were able to identify the suspect vehicle as a 2009 to 2013 Toyota Corolla.
"It should have passenger-side damage along the front side door and possibly the windshield," said Beck.
"If anyone has any information feel free to give the Lander office a call at 307-332-4155," he added.
Hill is the fourth pedestrian to die on Wyoming's highways so far this year, and the second pedestrian to die on Ethete Road since Nov. 14, 2020.
