Bicyclist from Hamburg killed on highway in State of Wyoming

CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — A Western New York man has been killed in an accident while bicycling on a road in Wyoming.

The Wyoming Highway Patrol says 59-year-old Gary Griffin of Hamburg was riding with a group of bicyclists when he was struck by a pickup truck outside Casper.

The accident happened around 11 a.m. Monday on Wyoming 220 about 25 miles south of Casper.

Patrol officials say Griffin for unknown reasons turned left across the highway in front of a pickup driven by a woman from Bar Nunn. Griffin died after being helicoptered to a hospital.

Patrol officials say the driver was unable to avoid colliding with Griffin and won’t be cited.

Bicyclists also have been killed in vehicle collisions in Sheridan and Casper in the past month. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
