The Wyoming Highway Patrol says two back seat passengers not wearing seatbelts have died after a vehicle rolled over near Wheatland.
The accident occurred before 8 a.m. July 30 on Interstate 25.
The patrol says a 2003 Buick Century was traveling northbound when the vehicle drifted into the median and in between the north and south bridge decks of the interstate at the Wyoming 34 interchange and overturned.
Killed were 45-year-old Lusk resident Andrea Garner and 35-year-old David J. Cunningham, of Casper. Both were riding in the back seat. These were the 95th and 96th fatalities in 2019–the state is on pace for one of the deadliest years on highways in recent memory.
The driver was identified as 24-year-old Casper resident Shane M. Moser, who was taken to Wheatland Hospital for injuries. Another front seat passenger from Casper also was hurt and taken to the Wheatland hospital.
