Two men were killed and one injured when their vehicle rolled off the road about 5:30 a.m. Friday in Natrona County.

Brandon Calliham, 22, of Casper, and Justin R. Steele, 25, of Wichita, Kan., died, according to a Wyoming Highway Patrol media release issued Monday. Christopher Mott, 32, of Douglas, was hospitalized at the Wyoming Medical Center.

Investigators say the driver of the 1997 Ford Explorer, Steele, was coming around a curve on the Interstate 25 frontage road 8.7 miles north of Casper when the vehicle went off the road and flipped multiple times.

Steele and Mott weren't wearing seat belts. Calliham was wearing his seat belt, though not correctly, according to the release.

Investigators are looking into whether excessive speed or alcohol use played a role in the crash.

Civil Dialogue

We provide this community forum for readers to exchange ideas and opinions on the news of the day. Passionate views, pointed criticism and critical thinking are welcome. Name-calling, crude language and personal abuse are not welcome. Moderators will monitor comments with an eye toward maintaining a high level of civility in this forum. Our comment policy explains the rules of the road for registered commenters.

If your comment was not approved, perhaps...

  1. You called someone an idiot, a racist, a dope, a moron, etc. Please, no name-calling or profanity (or veiled profanity -- #$%^&*).

  2. You rambled, failed to stay on topic or exhibited troll-like behavior intended to hijack the discussion at hand.

  3. YOU SHOUTED YOUR COMMENT IN ALL CAPS. This is hard to read and annoys readers.

  4. You have issues with a business. Have a bad meal? Feel you were overcharged at the store? New car is a lemon? Contact the business directly with your customer service concerns.

  5. You believe the newspaper's coverage is unfair. It would be better to write the editor at editors@trib.com, or call Editor Jason Adrians at 266-0545 or Content Director David Mayberry at 266-0633. This is a forum for community discussion, not for media criticism. We'd rather address your concerns directly.

  6. You included an e-mail address or phone number, pretended to be someone you aren't or offered a comment that makes no sense.

  7. You accused someone of a crime or assigned guilt or punishment to someone suspected of a crime.

  8. Your comment is in really poor taste.
