Fremont County Undersheriff Ryan Lee explained the situation…

The 20 year old female was operating a 2015 Ford Truck pulling a camper trailer along the Loop Road.  She had swung wide around a corner causing the camper trailer tires to leave the roadway, which in turn pulled the truck off over the shoulder of the roadway.  The trailer and camper tipped over against several trees.  All occupants were out of the vehicle upon arrival.  There was no evidence to suggest that the driver was impaired or distracted at the time of the collision.

Lee was able to confirm there were injuries to all three occupants, but could not release how severe they were. The accident call was received by the Fremont County Sheriff’s office at 12:55 p.m. Sunday afternoon.
