WORLAND — The Wyoming Highway Patrol responded to a three-vehicle
crash with one injury around 11 a.m. Monday, May 27, on U.S. 16,
Powder River Pass at mile post 48.6.
According to Wyoming Highway Patrol Lt. Karl Germain, the crash started when Kelly Keegan, 41, from Oklahoma, came over a hill driving too fast in her Nissan Xterra and veered out of her lane, clipping a Toyota Rav 4 in the rear quarter panel. The Rav 4 then pulled off to the shoulder, still drivable. The Rav 4 was driven by 37-year-old Robert Carrington of Casper.
Wyoming Highway Patrol Trooper Brandon Kidgell, the investigating officer of the crash, said that a third vehicle, a green Ford Edge, driven by 22-year-old Chayanne Lundberg of Cody, was struck by Keegan head-on after the initial collision with the Rav 4 in her Nissan Xterra, resulting in the Ford Edge veering to the edge of the roadway. Keegan’s Nissan Xterra then ran off the road into an embankment.
