Lander native reportedly killed in Montana motorcycle crash
Multiple family members have confirmed that a former Lander and Riverton resident was killed last Friday in a motorcycle crash in Billings, Mont. David Gasson Haukaas was 30 years old.
Our partners at KTVQ report that a pickup failed to see Haukaas on his motorcycle and struck him on Friday afternoon. Haukaas died of his injuries. As of Friday night, no citations had been issued against the driver, and alcohol and drugs were not suspected to be a factor.
Haukaas was born in Lander, grew up in Casper, and then lived for a time Riverton, before moving to Billings for work. Services are planned for this week in Billings. Read his obituary here.
We’ll report more as it becomes available.
