Rollover Crash Claims Life of Donald Wilbur in Crook County, Wyoming

Crook County, Wyoming – A single-vehicle rollover crash in Crook County, Wyoming, resulted in a fatality.

The incident occurred around 2:45 p.m. and involved a Ford F-350 traveling northbound on WY 585. The pickup truck lost control, causing it to veer into the southbound lane and skid across the intersection of Canyon Springs Road, eventually landing in a ditch where the truck tripped and rolled before coming to rest on its wheels.

The driver, Donald Wilbur, died from his injuries.

According to reports, there were icy and frosty road conditions at the time of the incident.

Thoughts on Ford Rollover Crashes

Many people are unaware that some of the Ford F-350s on our roadways are defective and cause people to die in rollover crashes when they should have otherwise lived. These defective Ford F-350s have issues with seatbelts breaking, airbags failing to deploy, and roofs crushing the occupants during the rollover sequence. Vehicles with preventable defects offer drivers and passengers little chance of survival.

Based on the information available, we don’t know if this truck was defective. However, I do know that we have handled over 300 rollover crashes where motorists were seriously injured or killed because their vehicles failed to protect them. Just this year, we helped a family whose mother and father were towing a trailer in a Ford F-250 on I-25 in Platte County, Wyoming, when a strong gust of wind caused their truck to roll over. When we inspected the truck, it was clear that the roof crushed the mother and father during the rollover crash because the roof was not strong enough to protect them.

When an accident of this nature happens, the surviving family deserves answers. Did the roof crush? Did the seatbelt break? Did the airbags deploy properly? Was the truck defective? If a detailed investigation conducted by trained professionals determines this Ford is defective, Ford should be held accountable for the innocent loss of life caused by this crash.
