Driver dies in Easter rollover crash in western Wyoming near Kemmerer


CASPER, Wyo. — Wisconsin resident Braxton Gusman, 20, died as a result of injuries sustained in a single-vehicle rollover crash on Sunday, April 17 on U.S. Highway 30 near Kemmerer, Wyoming Highway Patrol Sergeant Jeremy Beck confirmed on Monday.

WHP troopers were notified of the crash at around 5:20 a.m. on Easter morning, a preliminary crash report from the WHP states. The crash occurred near milepost 86.8 on U.S. Highway 30.

Gusman had been driving in a Chrysler 200 heading east on the highway when it crossed the westbound lane near milepost 86.8 and crossed into the north shoulder, where it hit a delineator post.

“The vehicle was corrected to the right and entered back into the westbound lane,” the preliminary crash report states. “The vehicle was then overcorrected to the left, traveling back onto the north shoulder where it exited the roadway. The vehicle entered a passenger-side leading skid before tripping and rolling two times.”

The driver and a front passenger were ejected from the vehicle during the rollover. Two passengers were injured during the crash, according to the preliminary crash report.

The WHP lists driver fatigue/sleep as possible contributing factors to the crash. Gusman was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash, according to the preliminary crash report.
