A man was killed in a single-vehicle crash near Kelly Walsh High School on Thursday morning.

The victim of the crash, whom police declined to identify but described as a 33-year-old white man, was the only occupant in the vehicle.

He was driving at “a high rate of speed” eastbound on 12th Street at around 8:45 a.m., when he slid off the road and hit a wall in front of the high school, said Casper police officer Darren Douglas.

The man was transported to the Wyoming Medical Center shortly after the crash. He was pronounced dead by 9:15 a.m.

Police said they did not believe the man had any affiliation with the high school. His family has been notified of his death.

Speed and road conditions were two causal factors in the crash, police said. The investigation, which temporarily closed East 12th Street between Kingsbury Drive And Trojan Drive, is ongoing.
