CARBON COUNTY, Wyo. — An EMT killed after being struck while working a separate crash scene was identified as Tyeler Harris.

Harris, 29, and a fellow EMT were attending to patients injured in a collision between a tractor trailer and a pickup truck when another tractor trailer struck the pair before crashing into the back of the ambulance.

Harris died as a result of fatal injuries suffered in the incident. The other EMT was critically injured.

In a statement, the Wyoming Highway Patrol said the driver is being investigated for possible “inattention” as a contributing factor to the incident.
