According to separate press releases from the Wyoming Highway Patrol, neither crash victim was wearing a seat belt.

Late Friday night, Powell resident Tylor R. Burke, 17, was driving a 2002 Mercury Sable northbound on Wyoming Highway 30 when the vehicle left the roadway some 20 yards before intersection with U.S. Highway 14/16/20.

The Highway Patrol narrative says the Mercury Sable went airborne three times during the crash and came to rest upside down, with Burke being ejected and ending up considerable distance from the vehicle.

The other fatal crash occurred early Sunday morning when 45-year-old Tina N. Nielsen lost control of her vehicle on U.S. Highway 20 six miles south of Basin.

The vehicle Nielsen was driving left the roadway, hit an embankment and rolled, ending up in a canal. Nielsen was also ejected during the crash.
