An 18-year old Laramie woman died Thursday after a collision with a semi truck on U.S. Highway 287.

Sgt. Jeremy Beck of the Wyoming Highway Patrol said the woman, believed to be a University of Wyoming student, was driving a Ford F-150 northbound on the highway amid icy road conditions.

“It was extremely icy at the time (of the accident),” Beck said.

The semi was traveling northbound on the highway in a route from Chico, California, to Denver when the F-150 drifted out of its southbound lane and collided with the semi. Beck said troopers are investigating whether the F-150 was traveling too fast given the road conditions.

The semi truck’s two occupants were taken to Ivinson Memorial Hospital in Laramie with minor injuries, Beck said.
