Despite what could have been a potentially-fatal crash between a semitrailer and white SUV on I-25 Dec. 29, neither driver was seriously injured.

The northbound white SUV lost traction and slid into the southbound lane around mile marker 152, colliding with a southbound semitrailer at approximately 2:20 p.m., according to Wyoming Highway Patrol Trooper Christopher Martin, who was at the scene of the accident.

Nobody was seriously injured, Martin said, with the SUV driver only sustaining minor scratches.

After the collision, the SUV sat on the northbound side of I-25 with a crumpled front end.

The semitrailer sat on the southbound side of the interstate, also with front end damage.

Douglas Volunteer Fire Department, Wyoming Highway Patrol, Converse County Sheriff’s Office and other law enforcement personnel were on the scene.

The crashed vehicles were removed from I-25.

“There are still slick spots on (I-25),” Martin cautioned.
