191 rollover

Crews are on Highway 191 between Bondurant and Hoback Junction this afternoon cleaning up the scene of a rollover, but the highway is open.

The accident near Cliff Creek occurred around noon when the 76-year-old driver of a southbound Chevy Silverado towing a camp trailer drifted and crashed into a delineator post. The camper crashed into a tree, then the truck and trailer rolled on the highway, a Wyoming Department of Transportation media release said.

The Boulder, Colorado, driver, his wife and two dogs that were in the car were all uninjured.

WYDOT credited the car occupants' seat belt use for avoiding serious injury. Driver fatigue is under investigation as a possible cause for the accident, according to WYDOT.

The road opened at 1:13 p.m. in both directions.
