Coroner releases names in deadly bus crash near Gillette

Campbell County Coroner Tom Eekhoff says Charles Errington Jr., Christopher Joubert and Colin Schultz died in a deadly bus crash near Gillette Wednesday morning.
The bus, which was traveling on Wyoming Highway 59, hit a stopped Chevrolet Impala from behind. That triggered an eight- vehicle pile-up.

It happened around 7:30 a.m.

The victims were in two vehicles and were waiting for a pilot car to escort them through the construction zone.

No charges have been filed. The investigation is ongoing.
It was a deadly day on Wyoming highways. A Thermopolis man was killed Wednesday night, north of Thermopolis, in what the Highway Patrol says was a crash that involved speed and alcohol. As of May 15, 43 people have lost their lives on Wyoming highways this year.
