Motor home crashes into Buffalo strip mall

Star-Tribune staff writer Friday, July 18, 2008
BUFFALO -- The Wyoming Highway Patrol reports one death in the motor home accident at a Buffalo strip mall Thursday evening.

Driver James Stark of Hot Springs, Ark., pulled the vehicle over while eastbound on U.S. Highway 16 after noticing that the brakes were hot, according to the patrol. Despite letting the brakes cool, the Starks found that they had no braking on the motor home once continuing eastbound.

The Highway Patrol says Stark swerved in and out of traffic to avoid collision until coming to a 'T' intersection with Main Street in downtown Buffalo. Troopers estimate the speed at approximately 50 mph as the motor home crashed into a building on the east side of the intersection. The motor home came to rest inside the building.

James Stark, 73, died at the scene.

Passenger Saralee Stark, 68, was also injured in the runaway vehicle. She was transported to Johnson County Memorial Hospital in Buffalo and has since been transferred to Wyoming Medical Center in Casper.
