Wyoming man dies after being life-flighted following rollover crash near Wright


CASPER, Wyo. — The Wyoming Highway Patrol said in a preliminary crash report that Wyoming resident Robert Wagner, 59, died after being life-flighted to a hospital for injuries sustained in a November 22 crash on Wyoming Highway 59 near Wright.

The WHP reports that the crash occurred around 6:15 p.m. Monday, November 22 near mile marker 65 on Wyoming Highway 59. Wagner had been driving north on the highway in a Ford pickup when the truck exited the roadway to the right and went into a barrow ditch and through the right-of-way fence.

“The Ford met a large divot in the east pasture, causing the Ford to enter a passenger-side–leading yaw,” the crash report states. “The Ford tripped and rolled one and a half times before coming to rest on its roof. The driver was Life Flighted, and later died at the hospital due to injuries sustained in the crash.”

Wagner was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash, according to the WHP.
