Girl found safe on Interstate 80

 

January 10, 2018



An early morning commute to work Monday resulted in the rescue of a girl suffering from hypothermia.

According to Stephanie Harsha, public involvement specialist for the Wyoming Department of Transportation in Rock Springs, a highway patrol trooper was dispatched to the area between mile markers 94 and 98 after motorists reported a girl walking along the eastbound lanes. When the trooper arrived to the area, a motorist on their way to work had already picked the girl up and transported her to Memorial Hospital of Sweetwater County.

Harsha said the girl was later reunited with her mother. She also said drugs and alcohol were not involved in the incident.

The Wyoming Highway Patrol declined to identify the girl due to her age.
