Motorcyclist Killed in Wyoming Crash May Have Fallen Asleep
A 39-year-old Nevada woman is dead after crashing her motorcycle in south central Wyoming's Carbon County Sunday afternoon.
The crash happened around 2:05 p.m. near milepost 47.5 on Wyoming 220, northeast of Muddy Gap.
The Wyoming Highway Patrol says Stephanie Shapley was approaching a right-hand curve when she crossed the centerline and westbound lane, entered the west borrow ditch and was thrown from her bike.
Shapley was wearing a helmet but died from her injuries.
Driver inattention and driver fatigue/asleep are being investigated as possible contributing factors.
Shapley is the 63rd person to die on Wyoming's highways this year.
