A 28 year old Salt Lake City woman is dead after the truck in which she was riding rolled on Interstate 80 one mile west of Evanston, Wyoming. Krista L. Weaver was the front seat passenger in the truck being driven by 36 year old Jeff McCurtain of Rock Springs. Weaver was not wearing her seat belt at the time of the crash and was thrown from the truck as it rolled on I 80 eastbound at approximately 7:02 p.m. on August 20th.

The truck was overcorrected after going off the right edge of the highway on a left hand curve. That caused the truck to enter a rotation, leave the roadway, trip and roll two and one-half times. It came to rest on its roof facing south in the median.

McCurtain was wearing his seat belt and a child was in a proper child restraint during the crash. Both McCurtain and the child were taken to Evanston Regional Hospital. Krista Weaver was pronounced dead at the crash scene.

The Wyoming Highway Patrol says this is the 98th highway fatality of 2014 on Wyoming highways. They also reminded everyone of the importance of seat belt and child restraint use and their effectiveness in saving lives during crashes.
