A three-vehicle crash reported in front of the Green Creek Inn in Wapiti left a few people injured around 4:15 p.m. Wednesday.

Wyoming Highway Patrol reports driver inattention is being investigated as a contributing factor in the accident. 

Wapiti Valley firefighters were first to respond. Ambulances from Cody Regional Health, a Guardian helicopter and Cody fire personnel were called into the accident near County Road 6CU on US 14-16-20 West. 

Highway Patrol said one occupant of a Honda Fit was life-flighted and two other occupants were transported to Cody via ambulance. No fatalities have been reported at press time.

Bill Daugherty, a Wyoming Highway Patrol trooper, reported the driver of the Honda failed to see a line of traffic in the roadway when heading eastbound and rear ended a GMC Yukon which then rear ended a Jeep Compass. The lead vehicle had been stopped in the roadway waiting to turn left near milepost 29. 

There were multiple broken legs initially reported in the accident, but Highway Patrol could not confirm this report afterwards.
