Funeral For Wyo. Girl Hit After Getting Off Bus

An 11-year-old Wyoming girl who was hit by a pickup truck after getting off a school bus is being remembered in her hometown.

Funeral services were held Tuesday for Makayla Strahle  in Idaho Falls, the city where she was born. Strahle moved to Wyoming two years ago and was a sixth grader at Wind River School in Pavillion, Wyo. Memorial services are also planned there later. Strahle was hit Dec. 20 on U.S. Highway 26, about 34 miles southeast of Dubois. There was heavy fog in the area at the time.

Authorities say 52-year-old William D. Barnes of Lander failed to stop his pickup for the flashing signals on the bus and hit Strahle as she was crossing the road. The Fremont County Attorney’s Office is reviewing the case.
