CASPER, Wyo. — A 25-year-old man accused of leaving the scene of a crash that killed a woman east of Rawlins has been charged.
Vasyl Zabiiaka, of Elmwood Park, Ill., was driving a tractor-trailer west on Interstate 80 when he rear-ended a pickup truck Wednesday night. A passenger in the truck, 52-year-old Cynthia Sanchez, of Rawlins, was killed.
Investigators say Zabiiaka drove to a truck stop in Rawlins, called authorities and told them he hit a deer.
He is charged with reckless driving, following too closely and leaving the scene of a crash.
