The Durango was driven by 24-year-old Marissa Carrasco, Satanta, and headed south on Hwy. 83 when the vehicle travelled left of center and then was struck on the northbound shoulder by the semi driven by Shawn Harney, 45, of Tribune. Harney was wearing his seat belt and was not injured in the incident.
