Head-On Crash on U.S. 287 Claims Life of Wyoming Man
A head-on collision involving a semi-truck and small passenger truck on U.S. 287 Tuesday night claimed the life of a 60-year old man from Wyoming.
According to the Coloradoan, Denis Bame of Medicine Bow, Wyoming was driving north on U.S. 287 when his Toyota truck crossed into the southbound lane hitting the semi head-on. Bame was pulled out of his vehicle before it was engulfed in fire, but he died on the scene. Nobody in the semi was injured.
Colorado State Patrol Sgt. Rob Madden told the Coloradoan that they are investigating drugs as a contributing factor in the crash.
This fatality makes 23 on Larimer County roads in 2018. This time last year, that number was 21.
