Wyoming Highway Patrol reported that Michael Marr and his two children were traveling on US 20-26 east of Shoshoni when a 75-year-old man crashed into them, causing a head-on collision.

32-year-old Michael and one of his children were airlifted via helicopter to Wyoming Medical Center to receive immediate medical attention for the injuries he sustained in the crash.

DRIVER FATIGUE

Stephen James Stewart was identified as the elderly male who potentially caused the fatal accident. Authorities are investigating the crash as the statement reads:

"Driver fatigue on the part of Stewart is being investigated as a potential contributing factor."

Stephens also suffered injuries in the accident despite his wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash. Unfortunately, Stephens didn't survive the accident and died at the scene. Further details surrounding the accident are yet to be released.

WATCHING FROM BEHIND

A GoFundMe campaign launched on behalf of the Marr family shared that Michael's wife and son followed them in another vehicle on the highway, which allowed them to see the crash play out in front of them.

Another fatal car crash took the lives of both drivers involved when a semi-tanker crashed into a car on the M6 highway.

A family friend, Wendy Coppersmith, launched the fundraiser, writing that Michael's wife, Hilary, reacted quickly upon seeing the accident occur and prevented her vehicle from being involved in the crash.

FIGHTING FOR HIS LIFE

The two Marr children who were in the vehicle with their father are Addison and McKenna. Addison suffered the more severe injuries as she has a concussion and a large laceration which required stitches. McKenna was just bruised.

Michael's condition is far more critical. His lungs were injured in the crash, and he was admitted to the ICU after being airlifted to the hospital. The GoFundMe page updates shared:

"The girls have been released from the hospital and both are doing good today. Mike is still in ICU in critical but stable condition."

ANOTHER FATAL CRASH

Another fatal car crash took the lives of both drivers involved when a semi-tanker crashed into a car on the M6 highway in Ottawa County, West Michigan. The accident occurred in the early hours of May 23, 2021.

The tanker and the car both caught alight, which hindered the first responders from removing the two drivers from the burning vehicles. Both drivers were pronounced dead on the scene of the crash.

The Michigan Department of Transportation closed the road in order to inspect the bridge where the accident took place. The Ottawa County hazardous materials team also reported to the scene to clean the spilled petroleum.

The cause of the semi-tanker crash is not yet known, with the authorities calling on witnesses to come forth with any information that may aid them in piecing together what happened.
