Seat Belts Save Lives in 20-26 Crash
The Wyoming Highway Patrol is crediting seat belt use for saving four lives in Sunday night's serious crash on Highway 20-26 near the Natrona-Fremont county line.
The Patrol tells K2 that three people remain hospitalized at Wyoming Medical Center, but all are doing well, and should recover. A Patrol spokesman says all four people involved in the two vehicle accident were wearing their seat belts, and while three did have significant injuries, one suffered only a seat belt burn.
Investigators have not determined what caused the crash that happened shortly before 6 o'clock Sunday night. They say a Chevy Tahoe was heading westbound near mile marker 65, when it swerved and hit a Volkswagen head on. The Tahoe rolled over, and on-lookers moved helped flip the car back onto its wheels.
Investigators say there is no indication of any substance abuse connected with the crash.
