Keith Fullenkamp, 37 an officer of Utah Department of Wildlife Resources was reported to be involved in a traffic accident that took his life Tuesday.

According to the news article, officials from DNR disclosed that Fullenkamp was driving home from Colorado when he crashed on Highway 789 in TrailerWyoming.

Allegedly a truck hauling two empty trailers crossed the center line of the highway and entered the northbound lane. At that time, Wyoming police stated that Fullenkamp was also driving his pickup truck towards the northbound direction. Fullencamp attempted to avoid the collision by steering onto the northbound shoulder. Authorities said that despite this attempt, the truck and trailer still ended up colliding with the DNR officer.

The truck and trailer apparently caught fire after the collision and became fully engulfed in fire. Police authorities stated that they are still investigating what caused the truck and trailers to drift into northbound traffic.

The report did not provide the identity of the driver nor was it mentioned that the driver of the truck hauling two trailers sustained any injury as a result of the accident.

Departent of Wildlife Resources officials described Fullenkamp as an organizer of many community events. He organized the Waterfowl Fair that was held last September 7 at Farmington Bay with more than 650 people in attendance.

Christensen & Hymas offers its condolences to the family, relatives and friends of Keith Fullenkamp. This is truly a sad loss for the communities he has ably served. Keith Fullencamp will surely be missed by his colleagues at the Department of Wildlife Resources.  We wish everyone safety in their daily travels. Let us share the road and take extra precaution so that our driving behavior will be safe for other road users. Consider your impact to other road users if you are less careful
