UPDATE: Driver in Cheyenne Crash Wanted for Child Sex Crimes
More information has been released on a crash that closed the intersection of Yellowstone Road and Four Mile Road for about four hours Tuesday evening.
Wyoming Highway Patrol Sergeant David Wagener issued the following statement Wednesday afternoon:
The two individuals involved in last night's crash have been identified as 26 year old Cheyenne, Wyoming resident Dean Jackson and 22 year old Cheyenne resident Ryan Romero.
Around 5:00 p.m. on August 2nd, Special Agents with the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI) attempted to stop a 1996 Volvo passenger car near the intersection of Yellowstone Road and Storey Boulevard within the city limits of Cheyenne. The Volvo was being driven by Dean Jackson who was wanted for a felony warrant for failure to appear for multiple counts of sexual exploitation of a child.
Jackson failed to stop for the agents and accelerated northbound on Yellowstone Road. A short time later, Jackson lost control of the Volvo and crashed at the intersection of Yellowstone Road and Four Mile Road. Jackson and Romero were both injured and transported by ambulance to Cheyenne Regional Medical Center.
There were no fatalities from this crash.
Jackson, on top of the felony warrant, is now also facing potential additional charges that are pending at this time.
The investigation is still ongoing.
