A commercial International straight-truck was eastbound while the Nissan was westbound. The driver of the International reportedly fell asleep and the vehicle is believed to have crossed the centerline into the opposing lane of travel and impacted the Nissan in an offset head-on type collision.

The Wyoming Highway Patrol investigation into the incident continues.

Meeker was reported to have been wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash.
