Vigil Being Organized, Crash Investigation May Take Several Days

Information from the Wyoming Highway Patrol says the investigation into the Wednesday morning crash that took the lives of three Campbell County men and closed Highway 59 south of Gillette for nearly four hours, will take time to complete.  

“Charges have not yet been filed and likely will not be until the investigation is completed, which may take several days. 

While it is difficult for most to fathom this kind of crash where a driver collides with stopped vehicles on an open roadway with no foul weather and clear visibility occurs all too frequently. As we enter into the road construction season all drivers are encouraged to pay attention to work zone signs and signals and to slow down, stay off the phone, and buckle up.”---WHP Facebook Page

Campbell County Coroner Tom Eekhoff said Charles Edward Errington Jr. (age 55), Christopher Curtis Joubert (age 40), and Colin Boyd Schultz (age 37) died in that crash.

Community members are organizing a vigil which will be held at Gillette Fishing Lake on Sunday May 18th at 2 pm.
