A DRIVER OF A SPORT UTILITY VEHICLE WAS KILLED, AND HER PASSENGER WAS INJURED, IN A ONE-VEHICLE ROLLOVER CRASH ON INTERSTATE 25 NEAR BUFFALO ON WEDNESDAY.

THE SUV WAS TRAVELING ABOUT 75 MPH NORTHBOUND ON I-25 AND THE DRIVER FAILED TO NEGOTIATE THE RIGHT-HAND CURVE.

THE SUV EXITED THE NORTHBOUND RIGHT OF WAY, THE DRIVER OVER-CORRECTED TO THE LEFT, CROSSED BOTH NORTHBOUND LANES OF TRAVEL AND ENTERED THE MEDIAN WHERE IT ROLLED TWO-AND-A-QUARTER TIMES.

THE DRIVER, 18-YEAR-OLD RAE WARE OF NORTHGLENN, COLORADO, WAS WEARING HER SEAT BELT PROPERLY, BUT SHE SUSTAINED FATAL INJURIES.

THE PASSENGER, 19-YEAR-OLD JONATHAN BURNS OF THORNTON, COLORADO, ALSO WORE HIS SEAT BELT.

BUT IT IS UNKNOWN IF THE SEAT BELT FAILED OR UNBUCKLED DURING THE ROLLOVER, CAUSING BURNS TO BE EJECTED OR IF HE WAS ABLE TO GET OUT OF THE SUV AND THEN COLLAPSED.

BURNS WAS TAKEN TO THE JOHNSON COUNTY HEALTHCARE CENTER IN BUFFALO AND HOSPITALIZED.

THE HIGHWAY PATROL IS INVESTIGATING DRIVER INATTENTION AS A CONTRIBUTING FACTOR IN THE CRASH.

THIS MARKED THE 49TH FATALITY ON WYOMING’S HIGHWAYS TO DATE COMPARED TO 73 IN 2017, 47 IN 2016, AND 69 IN 2015.
