On Sunday, June 16th, former Senator Tom James (Sweetwater) was pinned by a 4000 lb trailer while alone on his farm in Carpenter Wyoming. His wife, an advanced practice registered nurse, was not there at the time of the accident. After twenty minutes, a passing car stopped to render aid and first responders were called to the scene. The Burns volunteer fire department was able to free him from the collapse and he was life-flighted to the Medical Center of the Rockies in Denver. He is expected to recover.
