On February 12, 2014, Robert C. Kenney (age 63) of Methuen, MA was westbound on Interstate 80. He was 7.8 miles east of Arlington in Carbon County pulling a house trailer.
WYDOT had posted a wind advisory for no light high profile type vehicles due to the high winds the area was experiencing however Kenney failed to heed the posted warnings. A gust of wind caught the house trailer causing the trailer to roll onto its right side and the power unit to roll 1 3/4 times coming to rest on its drivers side. Kenney was partially ejected from the cab during the rollover.
The crash happened at 11:00 am and caused a temporary closure of westbound I-80 for approximately 4 hours.
