A 21-year-old Wyoming man is dead following a crash outside of Riverton yesterday (Tuesday) morning.

The Wyoming Highway Patrol says Johnnie Whiteman was headed south on N. Smith Road around 7 a.m. when he lost control of his car at milepost 501.

The Patrol says Whiteman's car went into the ditch, slid into a metal fence and then struck a power pole, bringing down live wires on the car.

Whiteman was lying beside his car when a Fremont County Sheriff's deputy arrived, but it's unknown whether he was ejected or not.
