Four-year-old St. Stephen’s boy dies in wreck near Laramie

(Laramie, Wyo.) – A 4-year-old St. Stephen’s boy was killed in a single vehicle wreck on Monday evening on Highway 287 about 22 miles south of Laramie.

Steven T. Warren died a little more than an hour after the wreck at Ivinson Memorial Hospital in Laramie, stated information in Wyoming Highway Patrol report.

The wreck occurred at 9:30 p.m. on an icy and snowy Highway 287 while Jerome H. Warren, 39, of St. Stephen’s, was at the wheel of the 1994 Chevrolet pickup. Jerome A. Whispering Wolf Warren, 8, was also a passenger.

“Warren lost control of the vehicle as he was starting to negotiate an uphill grade of the roadway,” the WHP states. “The vehicle started to rotate clockwise as it went off the roadway on the right side going into the barrow ditch. The vehicle then rolled 1 1/4 times. Neither child was properly restrained in a booster seat or a seat belt and during the rollover event Steven was partially ejected from the vehicle. The cab of the pickup sustained minimal damage and there was no intrusion into the occupant compartment. Troopers have cited Jerome for not having the children properly restrained in the vehicle as required.”

Both Jeromes were treated and released at the hospital. Neither were reportedly wearing seat belts.

    How tragic! Folks, I agree that the kids should have been properly restrained and that may have prevented his son's death. This father is going through his own kind of hell right now and does not need the judgement of others raining down on him. I'm sure he is blaming himself more than any of us ever could and it was a regrettable accident. I'm sure every one of us would have done some things different in our own lives if we could only look to the future at the consequences before hand. Just sayin'.

    Desirae Jellis No need to be snarky. My heart is broken on behalf of this loss. When there was the family with the little girl that was lost, there were funds raised. We cannot forget that a little child was lost.

    You don't need to be passing judgement about what my family is going through. And do something different in your own life and keep comments especially negative ones and opinions to yourself please! Just telling.

    I'm absolutely not passing judgement on your family. In fact, quite the opposite. My comment stemmed from someone else's critical comment. Please read it again.
