On October 7, 2019, a fatal crash occurred around milepost 169 on Interstate 90 east of Moorcroft, Wyoming. Around 7:34 p.m., Wyoming Highway Patrol troopers were dispatched to the area for a one-vehicle rollover.
A 2006 Toyota Tundra was traveling eastbound on Interstate 90 when the vehicle entered the median before the driver over-corrected to the right and then to the left before overturning.
The driver of the Toyota has been identified as 57-year-old Woodland Hills, California resident David Segal. Segal was wearing his seatbelt and succumbed to his injuries at the scene of the crash.
Driver inattention is being investigated as a possible contributing factor.
This is the 127th fatality on Wyoming’s roadways in 2019 compared to 91 in 2018, 111 in 2017, and 95 in 2016 to date.
