Two intoxicated drivers cause wrecks over the weekend

(Lander, Wyo.) – Two instances of people driving under in the influence over the weekend resulted in wrecks, minor injuries, and ultimately arrests.

The Fremont County Sheriff’s Office reports that Jeremy Reynolds, 24, of Pavillion, was arrested Friday evening near Pavillion following a single-vehicle wreck.

“By Reynolds’ own admission he was driving too fast down Shetland Road when he lost control of the vehicle at the intersection of Long Point Road causing the vehicle to overturn,” Undersheriff Ryan Lee said. “Reynolds admitted that he drank too much alcohol and was driving too fast.”

Lee said Reynolds was treated at SageWest – Riverton for a laceration sustained in the crash. His two passengers, a 31-year-old Casper woman and a 24-year-old Riverton woman were uninjured. Reynolds was charged with DUI, Speeding and Failure to Stop at Stop Sign.

The next day, a Lander Police Officer was sitting at a red light at Fourth and Main streets when he observed a white passenger car crash into the back of a small blue SUV, Chief Jim Carey said. The SUV was sitting in the lefthand turn lane on the eastbound side of Main when it was hit from behind.

The driver of the white car, 32-year-old Sarah Chand of Lander was found by officers to be intoxicated. She was transported by EMS to SageWest – Lander for treatment for injuries from the wreck and to have a blood alcohol test done. Chand has been charged with DUI, No Insurance, Following Too Close and Possession of Marijuana.

The driver of the small SUV was not injured.
