According to the fatality crash summary, a Nissan Titan traveling southward veered into the northbound lane, making contact with a Chevrolet Silverado in a side-swiping motion before ultimately colliding head-on with a GMC Acadia.
Tragically, the collision claimed the lives of three individuals. The deceased have been identified as 28-year-old Kasandra Roger, a resident of Idaho who was driving one of the pickup trucks, 41-year-old Kirstin Mortensen, the driver of the SUV and a resident of Wyoming, and 11-year-old Saige Mortensen, who was a passenger in the SUV.
Preliminary investigations suggest that driver inattention may have played a role in the tragic incident, although the investigation is still ongoing.
Disturbingly, Lincoln County has witnessed a disproportionate number of fatal accidents this year. Of the 55 reported fatalities on Wyoming’s highways thus far in 2023, seven, amounting to 12.73% of the total, occurred within Lincoln County.
