I-80 fatal accident

Salomon Correa, Andrea Prime, Ava Luplow, Magdalene Franco and Suzy Prime were traveling home to Arkansas from Jackson Hole when they were killed in a head-on collision Sunday on Interstate 80. Luplow’s mother Sarah Wimberly posted this photograph of the five friends Jan. 14 on Facebook saying “They are off!” and asking people to pray for their safe travels.

Five young people from Arkansas were killed Sunday after a pickup driving the wrong way caused a multi-vehicle pileup on Interstate 80 east of Rawlins.

The five people fatally injured in the crash, ages 18 to 23, were road-tripping 1,500 miles back from a vacation in Jackson Hole when they were hit by a semi truck that was trying to avoid the pickup driving the wrong way.
