Seat Belts Credited for Saving Lives in Goshen County Crash
Seat belt use likely kept a near head-on crash from turning tragic, the Wyoming Highway Patrol says.
The crash happened at the intersection of U.S. 85 and Wyoming 152 east of Yoder around 8:40 a.m. Wednesday.
Sgt. Jeremy Beck says a car was headed south on U.S. 85 when a pickup pulled into its path. Beck says the driver of the car couldn't avoid the pickup, and collided with it nearly head-on.
"While the vehicles sustained substantial damage, occupants from both vehicles received minor injuries," he said. "Seat belts and airbags played a significant role in the survival of all occupants."
Beck says unsafe turning is being investigated as a contributing factor.
