Although the multi-vehicle accident in Sundance, Wyoming on Wednesday looked pretty serious, thankfully no one was hurt.
Turns out a semi hauling a giant wind turbine blade, a semi hauling cattle, and a pilot vehicle on Wednesday were were involved in the accident near the port of entry.
“There were no serious injuries or livestock harmed,” The Wyoming Department of Transportation said. “The scene has been cleared and all on and off ramps are open. Thank you for your patience today.”
Speculation as to how the wreck happened ran rampant on Facebook.
“My guess is that the cattle truck was coming down the road, maybe icy, hit the blade in the front and the blade lifted up over the cab and dropped back down between and the pickup was just in the wrong damn place at the wrong time when it came down,” one person opined.
Another individual appeared perplexed:
“The cattle truck “hit” the blade bit I’m just trying to figure out how… I mean, how do you not see a big ass blade being hauled by TWO semis with flags and pilot cars?” he said.
