Woman Hit by Truck Dies of InjuriesA Casper woman who was hit by a truck last week while walking in the intersection at 2nd and Beverly streets, died Saturday.
Natrona County coroner Connie Jacobson says that 65-year-old Nella Vasquez died from a severe traumatic brain injury. She says an autopsy will not be performed because the cause of death was apparent.
Vasquez was struck by the male driver of a Chevy pickup truck who was making a left turn. An off duty firefighter and nurse happened to be at the intersection when the accident occurred, and immediately rushed to help.
The driver of the truck did remain at the scene of the accident. So far no charges have been filed.
