CHEYENNE, WYO. — A truck driver accused of trying to pass a convoy of Air Force trucks near Cheyenne could face criminal charges.
The Wyoming Highway Patrol says 51-year-old Randy Hill, of Torrington, Wyoming, was arrested Wednesday and taken to the Laramie County jail.
The patrol says Hill became impatient after coming upon the convoy while traveling north of U.S. Highway 85 and attempted to pass in the southbound lane, endangering oncoming traffic. At one point, an Air Force vehicle got in front of Hill to stop him. Patrol spokesman Sgt. David Wagener said Hill’s truck rear ended that vehicle. A state trooper was later able to stop him.
The case has been referred to Laramie District prosecutors.
It wasn’t clear if Hill has a lawyer yet.
