JACKSON, Wyo. — Authorities say a man was killed in a snowmobile crash near Togwotee Pass in northwestern Wyoming.
Wyoming Highway Patrol Lt. David Wagener said 74-year-old Gerald Walters, of Ten Sleep, accidentally rode off a 10-foot snowbank and landed on U.S. Highway 26 about 6 miles east of Togwotee Mountain Lodge on Sunday afternoon. Emergency responders were unable to revive the man.
Investigators say Walters' unfamiliarity with the area could have played a role in the crash.
Officials say Walters was wearing a helmet at the time.
