Three people including a minor died from a head-on collision east of Casper on Monday morning, authorities say.   

Kristofer Counts, 34, of Casper, was driving his 2002 Ford F-150 west on Highway 20/26 east of Casper on Monday morning at about 8:45, according to a Tuesday statement from the Wyoming Highway Patrol.  

Counts was not wearing a seat belt, but a child passenger was, the statement says.  

Because of what troopers are investigating as possible inattention and fatigue, Counts drifted across the centerline and collided head-on with another F-150, this one a 2018.  

Counts and the juvenile both died at the crash scene.  

Aaron Henson, 28, of Glenrock, was driving the newer F-150 and wearing his seat belt, the statement says.  

Emergency responders took him to the Banner Wyoming Medical Center in Casper, where he later died of his crash injuries. 

These are the 38th, 39th and 40th fatality on Wyoming’s roadways this year compared to 28 at this point in 2022, 30 in 2021 and 25 in 2020, the statement says.
