CASPER, Wyo. — A Wyoming resident died Saturday in a single-vehicle crash along Wyoming 95, near Rolling Hills.
The driver, heading northbound in a pickup truck, swerved over the center line and briefly ran off the road on the left side before steering to the right and reentering the road. However, he then left the road on the right side and, in attempting to once again correct and reenter the roadway, he sharply turned left, leading to a rollover, the Wyoming Highway Patrol reports.
According to the highway patrol, the driver was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from the pickup truck. The highway patrol lists driver inattention as the most likely cause of the crash, as the weather was dry and clear at the time of the wreck.
The motorist’s name has not yet been confirmed by the highway patrol. This story will be updated when more information is available.
