Crashes mark snowy Monday BY DAVID PECK A pair of collisions on a cold and snowy day kept emergency responders busy Monday in North Big Horn County. According to Wyoming Highway Patrol Trooper Blain Mollett, the first crash took place around 6:25 a.m. at the intersection of U.S. Highway 310 and Lane 13 south of Lovell. Rus- sell Dickson, 36, of Lovell, driving a 1992 Toyota pick- up, was traveling east on Lane 13 when he attempt- ed to stop at a stop sign at the main highway but was unable to stop and slid into the path of Devin Robert- son, 29, of Lovell, who was driving south on U.S. 310 in a 2002 Nissan Sentra. Sheriff&apos;s report Dickson was able to partially turn the Toyota, but the Nissan struck the right rear tire of the pick- up. Both vehicles were dis- abled and had to be towed, Mollett said. There were no injuries, and seatbelts were in use, Mollett said, adding that the airbag in Robert- son's Nissan deployed. Dickson was cited for speed too fast for conditions. COWLEY CRASH Mollett investigated a second crash Monday that happened around 2 p.m. nearly two miles west of Cowley on U.S. 310. Brad Trowell, 41, of Lovell was driving a 2003 Cadillac Es- calade east on 310 while Robert Wagner, 51, of Deaver was westbound in a 2003 Freightliner owned by Big Horn County and pull- ing a belly dump trailer. Mollett said the Esca- lade drifted across the cen- terline and sideswiped the truck on the drive axel, the first set of duals. Wagner could see the Cadillac drift- ing over and started mov- ing to the left but was un- able to avoid the collision, Mollett said. Both vehicles continued for a distance before stop- ping. All persons in the ve- hicles, including Trowell's passenger Suzette Jewell, were wearing seatbelts and there were no injuries, Mol- lett said. Trowell was cited for driving left of center.
