Gillette man killed in collision on icy highway


A Gillette man is dead after a two-vehicle collision on a snow-packed and icy highway.   

The Wyoming Highway Patrol says 31-year-old Travis Nelson was killed when he ejected from the cab of a pick up truck.  The pickup was struck by a tractor-trailer that was traveling in the opposite direction after the pickup's driver, 22-year-old Jared Wass, lost control.  

Nelson was the only one not wearing a seatbelt in the accident.

Wyo 59 was closed for about two hours.
