Casper Man Dies From Injuries At Crash Near Kelly Walsh High School
A 33-year-old Casper man died from his injuries from a crash near Kelly Walsh High School this morning, a Casper Police Department spokesman said Thursday.
"About 8:45 a.m. this morning, a citizen called in that a vehicle had struck a concrete wall in the area of 12th (Street) and Nottingham (Drive)," John Hatcher said.
"Officers responded and found a 33-year-old male subject, and the sole person in the vehicle," Hatcher said.
He was taken to the Wyoming Medical Center with serious bodily injuries, and he later died.
The vehicle was a gray minivan traveling eastbound on 12th Street, Hatcher said.
There were no other injuries reported, Hatcher said.
The crash remains under investigation, so it is unknown at this time whether he drove on a patch of ice, was driving too fast for conditions, was wearing a seat belt, was under the influence, was distracted, or was influenced by something else, Hatcher said.
Thursday afternoon, Hatcher said the crash scene has been cleared. East 12th Street is now open from Kingsbury Drive to Trojan Drive.
The Natrona County Coroner's office issued a news release Thursday afternoon saying the identification of the deceased will be released after family members are notified, and the cause of death will be determined at a later date.
