A 36-year-old man is dead following a crash east of Cheyenne last (Monday) evening.

Laramie County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Capt. Linda Gesell says Daniel Acosta -- a Sgt. at F.E. Warren Air Force Base -- was killed when his BMW collided with a
GMC Suburban near the intersection of E. Pershing Boulevard and Hayes Avenue shortly after 5:30 p.m.

"At this point we believe the crash occurred in the eastbound lane," said Gesell. "We believe that the driver of the GMC Suburban was in the eastbound lane at the time going westbound."

"At the time the accident occurred it was snowing out east of town, so I don't know how much of a factor that played in the crash at this point," Gesell added.

Gesell says the driver of the GMC Suburban, 59-year-old Peggy Jo Wilson of Cheyenne, had to be extricated from her vehicle. She was taken to Cheyenne Regional Medical Center where she was treated and released.

"The case remains under investigation by crash reconstruction officers," said Gesell.
