Authorities have now identified the driver who was killed in a fatality accident that occurred shortly after 7:30 p.m. Wednesday on U.S. Highway 54 about two miles west of Guymon, Okla.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol said a 2019 Chevrolet Colorado and 2008 Kenworth were eastbound on Hwy. 54, with the Colorado following the semi. The agency reported the semi slowed to make a right turn, and the Chevy struck the rear of the Kenworth.

The semi’s driver, Prospero Galdamez, 51, of Merino Valley, Calif., was not injured. The Colorado’s driver, who OHP identified Thursday as Mia Taylor, 20, of La Vista, Neb., was pronounced dead at the scene from head, arms, trunk internal, trunk external and leg injuries by Guymon Fire Chief Grant Wadley. OHP officials had been awaiting notification of the next of kin before releasing the driver’s name.
