Multiple emergency responders on Saturday night are working the scene of a fatal crash on Casper Mountain Road.

One person died after their motorcycle left the west side of the road about a half mile south of Garden Creek Road, Wyoming Highway Patrol trooper Austin McDaniel told K2 Radio News at the scene.

The wreck was reported to authorities at 8:30 p.m. Emergency responders have since recovered the body.

Southbound Casper Mountain Road -- Wyoming Highway 251 -- will be closed for several hours as emergency responders recover the motorcycle.
