Distracted driving reportedly leads to Burma Road crash Tuesday evening
(Riverton, Wyo.) – A 28-year-old Pavillion man struck a concrete pillar and fence near the intersection of Burma Road and Highway 134 last night. The man was operating a 2003 Dodge Sedan north on Burma Road with his four year old daughter. The man’s daughter was the sole passenger, she was properly restrained.
The man indicated he became distracted when his cell phone began to ring and he lost focus with the roadway. The vehicle veered off the opposite shoulder of the road striking the pillar and fence.
The young girl was taken to Sage West Riverton via ground ambulance for evaluation of non life threatening injuries; the driver did not require medical treatment. The complete investigation into the incident is still under investigation; alcohol was not a factor.
