DEVILS TOWER — An Illinois man is dead after a tractor-trailer struck his car near Devils Tower.

The Wyoming Highway Patrol says 65-year-old Bruce M. Hinton, of Lindenhurst, Ill., failed to yield when he exited a scenic pullout on Wyoming Highway 24 on Tuesday.

A Freightliner driven by 46-year-old Troy D. Gossard, of New Underwood, S.D., ran into Hinton's 2003 Mercedes.

Patrol officials say the truck driver tried to avoid the crash. A 9-year-old child in the car was taken to a hospital and was in stable condition.

Gossard wasn't hurt in the crash.
