One person, 3 horses, and a dog were all killed Friday evening, after a tragic crash near the intersection of Wyoming State Highway 257 and Robertson Road. According to some people nearby, the intersection is very dangerous, as multiple accidents have occurred there in the past few months.  Within the next few weeks, new legislation will increase the speed limit on the highway, to 70 mph.  The horses that died in the crash, were not involved with the College National Finals Rodeo that's in town for the week.  As of Friday evening, 3 people remain in the hospital with unknown injuries.  The exact cause of the crash, remains under investigation.
