Crews are at work today clearing Teton Pass of debris where a tractor-trailer overturned about 7:30 last night.  The crash tied up traffic for a little over an hour while crews extricated the driver and secured the scene.  According to Wyoming Highway Patrol Lieutenant Tom Kelly, 50-year-old Sharop Khudayberganov of Davenport, Iowa was eastbound with a load of talcum powder when the truck lost its brakes and failed to negotiate a curve just west of Wilson.  Kelly says the driver escaped the wreck with only a few bumps and scratches.  The tractor and trailer along with over two-hundred feet of guardrail were a total loss.  The trucker is being cited with driving over the pass with an overweight load.
