A WYDOT plow was recently struck by a semi truck on Interstate 80 near Wamsutter last week. WYDOT encourages drivers to pay attention, reduce their speed and drive cautiously during winter storms.

A number of vehicle crashes occurring in Sweetwater County have resulted in law enforcement telling residents to be cautious while driving.

In Green River, officers responded to a number of crashes occurring throughout the city during the last week. Det. Luke Benson said the city experienced one of the larger snowfalls of the year last week, which resulted in the police department calling for help from the city's streets department to clear snow.

However, Benson also reminded residents to drive according to the weather conditions, saying the speed limit might be too fast in some cases.
