A 41-year-old Cheyenne man was killed Wednesday after a tire blew out on his car on Interstate 80, causing him to roll his car.

Wyoming Highway Patrol Sgt. Jeremy Beck says the crash happened at milepost 347 around 10:40 p.m.

Beck says George J. McLoughlin was headed east when his tire blew, causing him to drive off the left side of the interstate and overturn.

McLoughlin, who was not wearing his seat belt, was thrown from the car and died at the scene.
