A three-car pile-up on

Highway 191 north near Forty Rod Road

caused considerable delays on Friday afternoon.

The crash happened in the middle

of the construction zone where crews were

resealing the road. According to Lt. Klief

Guenther of the Wyoming Highway Patrol,

a cement truck driven by David Reed of

Reed’s Construction “did not stop when

he was supposed to” when the pilot car

leading a line of vehicles slowed down in

the construction zone. The cement truck

plowed into a car from Colorado and a

second car carrying a family from Texas.

Several of the occupants of the damaged

passenger cars sustained “minor injuries,”

Guenther said. They were taken to the

Pinedale Clinic for treatment and released

later that day.

Reed was cited for following too close

following the crash.

Guenther added that it is important to be

extra vigilant when driving in a construction

zone.

“Give yourself enough space between

vehicles and be cognizant of distracted

driving,” he said.
