CHEYENNE, Wyo. (WOOD) - A Kalamazoo man was killed in a highway crash involving a semi-truck in the state of Wyoming, local news agencies are reporting.
The wreck happened Tuesday on I-80 near Cheyenne, Wyo., according to sweetwaternow.com.
Kalamazoo residents Robert Sucik and David Gumbleton, ages 23 and 24, were headed east in a Chevrolet Tahoe when they came upon a semi-truck that was stopped in an emergency lane because of mechanical problems, sweetwaternow.com reports. The semi-truck's flashing hazard lights were on.
The Kalamazoo men's Tahoe drifted to the right into the emergency lane, striking the left rear of the semi trailer.
The collision pushed the semi-truck forward a short distance and forced the passenger's side of the Tahoe under the trailer.
Gumbleton was sitting in the passenger's seat and was killed in the crash.
It took authorities six hours to extricate Gumbleton's body from the wreck, investigate and clear the scene. The eastbound lanes of the interstate were shut down during that time.
Driver fatigue is being investigated as a factor.
The rink will be open that day from 3-9 p.m.
