RIVERTON, Wyo. (AP) — Authorities say a 4-year-old girl and her grandmother were killed in a two-vehicle crash near Togwotee Pass in northwestern Wyoming.

The Riverton Ranger reports (http://bit.ly/1hW9WDe ) 4-year-old Aylin Ruiz and 56-year-old Dolores Ruiz, both of Mountain Home, Idaho, were among 10 people in an SUV that crashed into a tractor-trailer just east of Wind River Lake on Thursday afternoon. All of the people in the SUV were injured, but the two in the tractor-trailer were unhurt.

Dubois fire chief Mike Franchini said most of the people in the SUV were critically injured, although specific details about their conditions have not been released.
