Wyoming Trucker Dies of Injuries From Collision With Tow Truck
A 54-year-old Gillette man has died from injuries he received in a two-vehicle collision west of Wright, according to the Wyoming Highway Patrol.
The crash happened around 9:25 a.m. on Nov. 6 near milepost 47 on Wyoming 50.
Sgt. Jeremy Beck says the road was "wet with ice and frost" when Robert Parish lost control of his semi and was struck by a tow truck.
Beck says Parish, who was wearing his seat belt, was taken to Regional Health Rapid City Hospital where he died from his injuries two days later.
The driver of the tow truck, 42-year-old Louis R. Cordova, of Casper, was taken to Campbell County Memorial Hospital where he was treated and released.
