A Nevada man died in a single vehicle rollover crash that temporarily closed Interstate 25 north of Cheyenne on Sunday morning, according to a news release from Sgt. David Wagener of the Wyoming Highway Patrol on Monday.
During the rollover, 24-year-old Christian Lomeli-Santos of North Las Vegas was ejected from the vehicle and died at the scene.
Oscar Hernandez-Alanis, 44, of North Las Vegas, Nev., was driving a 2004 Chevrolet Suburban northbound on I-25.
At 8:30 a.m., the Suburban drifted right across the northbound rumble strips at mile post 34 about 20 miles north of Cheyenne.
Hernandez-Alanis over-corrected to the left, which sent the vehicle into a counter-clockwise spin. During the spin, the Suburban entered the median, tripped and rolled multiple times.
He and three other passengers from North Las Vegas were taken to the Cheyenne Regional Medical Center for treatment. The other passengers were 39-year-old Javier Santos-Lavreano, 24-year-old Porfivio Pamplona-Santos, and 34-year-old Jose Pena Martinez. Their conditions were unknown at the time of the news release.
Driver inattention by Hernandez-Alanis is being investigated as the contributing factor in this crash. He was cited for failing to maintain a single lane of travel.
