Woman Dies in Icy I-25 Crash Near Chugwater
A 38-year-old Rapid City, South Dakota woman died Tuesday morning in a single-vehicle rollover on Interstate 25 just south of Chugwater.
The Wyoming Highway Patrol says Miranda Madsen was heading home to Rapid City when she lost control of her pickup on the icy, snow-covered interstate and rolled it approximately three times.
Mariah Handley, who was unbuckled in the rear of the truck, was thrown from the pickup and died from her injuries. The other occupants were taken to Platte County Memorial Hospital in Wheatland with minor injuries.
I-25 was closed for roughly four hours due to the investigation and poor road conditions.
