CHEYENNE Local man dies after truck loses control and rolls near Wheatland A 26-year-old Cheyenne man died in a one-vehicle crash Tuesday evening 13 miles south of Wheatland in Platte County. Passenger Colt A. Lemmons died at the scene, which was on Interstate 25. The driver of the truck, a 16-year-old boy, was treated at Platte County Memorial Hospital in Wheatland and released. A news release from the Wyoming Highway Patrol says around 6:25 p.m., the driver was northbound on I-25 and pulling a boat trailer with a boat on it. For unknown reasons, the trailer started to fishtail and caused the driver to lose control. The combination went onto the shoulder, and the driver overcorrected to the left and then right. The combination then started to rotate clockwise and go into a broadside slide before the truck rolled one-and-a-half times. The combination came to rest blocking both northbound lanes of travel, the release says. Neither occupant was wearing a seat belt, and the passenger was totally ejected. The crash is under investigation, and when it's finished it will be turned over to the Platte County attorney. He will decide whether to file criminal charges. Local man arrested for allegedly robbing Ridge Road Kum and Go A Cheyenne man was arrested Tuesday after allegedly pointing a handgun at a local Kum and Go employee and taking money from the convenience store. Bronson J. Elder, 24, is being held in the Laramie County jail for aggravated robbery, a news release from the Cheyenne Police Department says. He is scheduled to appear in Laramie County Circuit Court today. According to an arrest report, around 3:39 a.m. Tuesday, a Cheyenne Police officer responded to the store, 4505 Ridge Road, for a robbery. When he arrived, the officer contacted employee David Richardson, who said he was outside smoking earlier when he heard footsteps. When he turned, he saw a man pull a handgun from the waistband of his pants. The man demanded money from him. Richardson said he didn't have any money on him, so the suspect ordered him inside. Once there, the suspect ordered him to open the cash register. After he took money from the register, the suspect fled the store. Cheyenne Police Lt. Rob Dafoe said he took more than $100. The arrest report says a patrol dog was called to the area and alerted to a man that fit the suspect's description. After further investigation, the man later identified as Elder was arrested. The case remains under investigation, the release says.
