3 Killed in I-80 Crash [Updated]
Three people are dead following an accident on Interstate 80 east of Cheyenne Wednesday evening.
The Wyoming Highway Patrol says 45-year-old David Knotts of Jenison, Michigan and two children, ages nine and six, were killed when the vehicle they were traveling in crashed into the back of an over-sized semi.
Sergeant David Wagener says Knotts was traveling at highway speeds when he struck the semi which was slowed in traffic approximately three miles east of the Hillsdale exit.
The driver of the semi was uninjured in the crash.
A nine mile portion of eastbound Interstate 80 was closed for five hours, while traffic was routed around the crash scene.
