Whoa in wyoming!

The Wyoming Highway Patrol would like to release the in-car camera footage of a recent collision. This video is being released to raise awareness of the hazards emergency personnel deal with daily.

As you can see from the in-car camera (rearview camera), the commercial vehicle had moved over into the left lane of travel. However, the commercial truck was traveling too fast for the hazardous road conditions, causing the driver to lose control. The driver of the commercial vehicle was cited for careless driving.

The Wyoming Highway Patrol would like to remind motorists when you see emergency lights ahead, slow down, and prepare to stop. The emergency lights are activated to warn the public of an imminent hazard or emergency.

*ORIGINAL RELEASE FROM OCTOBER 31, 2019*

On October 31, 2019, at 1:08 p.m., a Wyoming Highway Patrol vehicle was involved in a motor vehicle collision. The collision occurred around milepost 66 on Interstate 25 south of Wheatland, Wyoming.

The WHP Trooper was stopped on the shoulder, assisting a stranded motorist when her patrol vehicle was struck by a passing commercial truck. The trooper was inside her patrol vehicle with her seatbelt fastened at the time of the collision. The crash caused the northbound lanes of Interstate 25 to be closed.

The trooper was transported to the Platte County Memorial Hospital with minor injuries.

The driver of the commercial vehicle did not sustain any apparent injuries and was not transported.

The WHP would like to remind motorists to slow down and move over when approaching an emergency vehicle.

    I wonder if the commercial vehicle was speeding due to the inflexible ELD mandate making the driver feel pressure to speed in order to not be violated on the device? I notice more and more large carrier trucks doing excess of 75mph since the mandate when the best they could do prior was 64mph!! Huh!! I thought they said speed was the cause of most crashes, maybe this should be studied more!
