A spokesman for the Wyoming Highway Patrol said the Abels were killed abut 12:50 p.m. Saturday when the car he was driving south collided with a car driven by Thomas Kysar, 20, of Powell, Wyo. Kysar received minor injuries, the patrol said.
The patrol said the car driven by Kysar passed a semi-tractor trailer and struck the rear of the Abel's car as it was returning to the right-hand lane. The car carrying the Abels struck a guard rail, went off the road and rolled four times, ejecting both victims, stated the patrol.
