77 year-old man killed in Sweetwater County accident


Sweetwater County, WY (KGWN) - 77 year-old Bobbe Foreman was killed in a two car accident on I-80 Wednesday.

Wyoming State Troopers were looking for Foreman after receiving reports he was speeding, making unsafe lane changes and passing on the shoulder. The complaints had been called in approximately 15 minutes prior to the crash.

Katherine Fonseca, of Pueblo Colorado, was driving a U-haul truck pulling a car trailer loaded with a car. At the Point of Rocks interchange on I-80, Foreman's vehicle ran into the rear of the trailer being pulled by Fonseca. After the impact, Fonseca was able to drive to a controlled final position on the shoulder of the interstate. Foreman was flown by helicopter to Memorial Hospital of Sweetwater County in Rock Springs where he later died.

Excessive speed and impaired driving are being investigated as contributing factors in this crash.
