I-70 Fatal crash
On Wednesday Febuary 2, 2022, at about 12:40 pm, a semi tractor with a box trailer was eastbound on I-70 near milepost 145 coming down Spotted Wolf Canyon west of Green River when the vehicle left the roadway to the south side and impacted a dirt canyon wall. There were no witnesses to the crash. Based on evidence observed at the scene, it is believed the adult male driver of the semi may have attempted to exit the semi prior to impacting the canyon wall.
