The driver of the bus failed to stop and collided with the other vehicles, causing damage to a third vehicle that was also stopped in front of the previous crash. This per a news release from the Wyoming Highway Patrol.
Timothy R. Hunger, a 65 year old Casper resident, was wearing a seatbelt, but succumbed to his injuries at the Converse County Memorial Hospital.
