CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — A jury has awarded $2 million to the widow and daughter of a motorcycle rider killed by a Wyoming intersection crash.

Sixty-two-year-old Bill Gray, of Casper, died two weeks after a driver struck him on his motorcycle in the Evansville intersection in 2017.

A lawsuit alleged construction contractor Knife River Corp. and its subcontractor for traffic control, Roadworx, were negligent in guiding traffic through the intersection.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports jurors found Knife River 60% at fault and Roadworx 30% responsible; the driver's responsibility was 10%.

A Roadworx attorney declined comment and a Knife River attorney didn't immediately return a message Friday seeking comment.
