Two Riverton Residents Die in Fatal Car AccidentVictoria Fregoso reports, email@example.com
Two Riverton residents are dead after their vehicle was rear-ended on US Highway 26 early this morning.
Anthony and Deaun (said like "Deon") Smith were stopped at a flagger who was directing traffic near the Boysen causeway, when a pickup truck failed to stop and pushed the couple off of the road.
The Smiths were traveling east on the highway towards Shoshoni around seven o'clock.
WYDOT workers are crack sealing areas along the causeway and have traffic reduced down to one lane.
Pilot cars are guiding vehicles through the construction area and speed limits are reduced down to 45 m.p.h as you approach flaggers.
It is unknown at this time how fast the pick-up truck was going.
