A Wisconsin truck driver was killed Tuesday in Uinta County when his semi-truck rolled over.

Kevin Smith, 43, was driving a Kenworth combination unit eastbound on I-80 in the right lane near Lyman. He failed to negotiate a slight right-hand curve. The truck crossed the left lane and exited the roadway into the median.

The truck flipped onto the driver’s side. Although Smith was wearing his seat belt, he was partially ejected and pinned under the vehicle.

Fatigue and/or inattention is being investigated as a contributing factor.

This was the 27th fatal injury on Wyoming highways this year.
