Trucker was stuck on snowy road for three days before calling Wyoming police


Wyoming police say that a truck driver was stuck on an impassable road for days before he called for help.

Local news outlet Oil City News reports that the truck driver called the Natrona County Sheriff’s Office on October 29 to tell police that he was struck.

When police found the stuck truck about eight miles southwest of Black Mountain, Wyoming, the driver said that he was following his GPS on the way to Salt Lake City when he became stuck on a two-track roadway.

The driver also told police that he had waited three days to call for help, though it isn’t clear why he waited so long.

A Natrona County Sheriff’s Office deputy gave the driver food and water as well as a ride into Casper.

A tow company was scheduled to retrieve the stuck truck on Wednesday.
