2 Wyoming Residents Dead Following Rollover Crash Near Rawlins
Two Wyoming residents are dead after their pickup truck rolled on a county road near Rawlins late last week.
Merlyn Smith, 79, and Elizabeth Noland, 33, were both thrown from the pickup during the crash. Neither person was wearing a seat belt, according to a report from the Wyoming Highway Patrol.
They were northbound in a Chevrolet pickup on County Road 401 near Sage Creek when the truck drove off the road to the right at roughly 3:30 p.m. Friday. The Chevrolet tripped and rolled an unknown number of times before landing on its wheels some 100 yards from the road.
Because both victims were found outside the pickup, investigators were not immediately able to determine which person was driving at the time of the wreck.
Weather was clear and road conditions were dry at the time. The investigation was ongoing at the time the crash report was released.
