A motorcycle went over the guard railing on the west side of the road and driver was thrown to base of the mountain.
Another vehicle accident occurred further south at about the same time. Additional information is expected later today from the Wyoming Highway Patrol.
Also on Sunday afternoon, the Thayne Fire Department responded to a brush fire in the Lower Valley.
