“It involved one vehicle–it was a single-vehicle rollover. The driver, who was not wearing a seat belt, was totally ejected from the vehicle during the rollover, and that driver was Tanya Husmann, age 26, from Wright, Wyoming.”

Sgt. Townsend said as far as they know the weather and road conditions were good, and that troopers do not suspect alcohol as being a factor in the crash.

“Troopers at this point don’t know why she lost control of her vehicle and went off the roadway.”

Husmann was the second person to die on Wyoming highways this year. Sgt. Townsend there is sometimes a reporting delay between agencies, so, right now, the official number is two fatalities for 2012.

“We still have 30 days after a crash happens so the last few crashes that occurred had some injuries so we’ll just have to wait and see. Hopefully we won’t have any more fatalities from those.”

And hopefully the trend is going down for fatal crashes, said Townsend. The number of people who died in 2009 and 2011 was 134 people; in 2010, 153; in 2008, 154; 2007, 149; 2006 had 195 fatal crashes; 2005, 158; and in 2004 there were 164 people killed in Wyoming highway crashes.
