I-80 Semi-Trailer Collision Kills California Man

William Krawisz of Mammoth Lakes, California, was killed in a crash on Interstate 80 near Laramie, Wyoming. Mr. Krawisz was in a Volkswagen camper van with three others when it was struck from behind by a semi trailer being driven by Jaskaran Singh of Des Moines, Iowa. According to a report in the Casper Star-Tribune, both vehicles were travelling in the main driving lane as the roadway ascended up a slight hill.

Singh told authorities from the Wyoming Highway Patrol that he reached for his cell phone, realized that the van was directly in front of him, and collided into the van. The collision caused the van to veer off the road and roll. Mr. Singh was cited for careless driving.
