Zachary Nicholson Killed in Snow Plow Accident in Sheridan County, WY

Sheridan County, WY -- February 19, 2023, Zachary Nicholson was killed due to an accident where his vehicle crashed with a snow plow.

Initial details about the crash say it happened at the intersection of Highway 335 and Knode Road early Sunday.

Officials say that 29-year-old Zachary Nicholson was a passenger in Jeep Wrangler driven by Kimberly Flynn. They were northbound on the highway when a snow plow apparently pulled off Knode Road and crashed with the Jeep.

Due to the collision, Nicholson sustained fatal injuries. It's unclear at this time if Flynn had any injuries. Police said they're looking into inattention as a possible factor, but that remains unconfirmed. Frankly, it wouldn't surprise me if that's what happened here.

One thing that stood out was authorities outright saying that despite snow and ice on the roads, weather was clear, and it happened during daylight hours. Generally speaking, there aren't that many conditions more favorable for seeing cross traffic. Unless the snow was towering over the truck, how exactly would they fail to see the approaching vehicle?

Maybe this is some highly unusual situation the truck driver couldn't avoid, and that may come to light during more thorough investigations. In my experience, however, checking into things like cell phone records, video footage, ECM data, driving history, and crash reconstruction tends to reveal this sort of thing only happened because someone made a completely avoidable mistake.
