Police investigate crash at Rush Creek

Early on Thursday morning, May 16, a black Dodge Ram 1500 was traveling south on Carr Road, south of the railroad tracks. The vehicle left the road as it approached Rush Creek, rolling at least one time over the three culverts on the east side of the lane before coming to rest on the driver's side in the ravine.

The accident was reported by a passer-by going to work at approximately 4 a.m. and Moorcroft chief of police Bill Bryant responded by 4:30 a.m. to find the driver had abandoned the pickup and was not found at the scene, though Bryant discovered blood traces leaving the gully.
