(Shoshoni, Wyo.) – It was this driver’s Friday the 13th for sure… A semi tractor-trailer carrying hay through the Wind River Canyon turned over at mid afternoon, closing one lane of the highway as traffic was able to squeeze by the spilled load of alfalfa. A private large-vehicle wrecker from Lander was dispatched to the scene to help clear the wreck and Wyoming Department of Transportation equipment was sent to the site to move the alfalfa bales and loose hay.
The Wyoming Highway Patrol is investigating the crash. No word was available on the driver or passengers in the truck.
