One Vehicle Rollover Injures Three Youth
Three juveniles were hospitalized after they were injured in a one-vehicle rollover crash north of Bar Nunn on Saturday morning, a Natrona County Sheriff's Office spokesman said.
The Sheriff's Office received the call at 10:15 a.m., Sgt. Aaron Shatto said.
The accident happened shortly before the call. One of the occupants was able to locate a cell phone and call 911, Shatto said.
The vehicle was found off a two-track road near Westwinds Road about a mile west of Interstate 25.
It had been traveling west, but it was pointed northeast at the scene after it rolled one time, Shatto said.
The three juveniles were taken to the Wyoming Medical Center, and one was later taken by life flight to a Denver hospital, he said.
Shatto declined to release the names or ages of the juveniles. but did say they were residents of Natrona County.
The Sheriff's Office did not have a complete report yet about the extent of the injuries, Shatto said. They were not wearing seat belts, he added.
"At this point in time, the Sheriff's Office does not believe alcohol was a factor, nor any drugs," Shatto said.
Besides the Sheriff's Office, other responding agencies included the Casper Police Department, the Bar Nunn Fire Department and the Wyoming Medical Center, he said.
