KEMMERER, Wyo. (AP) — Two people have died in a head-on collision involving two trucks in southwest Wyoming.

The Wyoming Highway Patrol says the crash occurred about 2:50 a.m. Monday on U.S. 30 east of Kemmerer when a westbound 2004 Volvo Conventional crossed into the eastbound lane where it collided with a 2017 Freightliner.

The driver of the Volvo has been identified as 63-year-old Portland, Oregon, resident Volodymyr V. Boyko. Boyko was not wearing his seatbelt and died at the scene.

The driver of the Freightliner has been identified as 40-year-old Bessemer, Alabama, resident Candi L. Guy, who also died at the scene.

A passenger in Guy’s truck was taken to a hospital.

The patrol says driver inattention or fatigue on the part of Boyko is being investigated as a contributing factor.
