A Nebraska woman is dead and five other people are injured after a one-vehicle crash just west of the Wyoming-Nebraska border on Wyoming Highway 93 in Goshen County.

The Wyoming Highway Patrol says 22-year-old Ethan Kaufman of Scottsbluff, Neb., was driving westbound in his 2006 GMC pickup shortly before midnight Thursday when his vehicle slid off the roadway. Officials say Kaufman’s vehicle then collided with a private driveway, crashed into a drainage ditch and flipped.

A passenger, 18-year-old Alexis Wheeler of Scottsbluff, Neb., died after being transported to Regional West Medical Center in Scottsbluff.

The highway patrol says Kaufman, 23-year-old Stetson Allen of Morrill, Neb., and 20-year-old James Burford of Morrill, Neb., were taken to Community Hospital in Torrington for treatment. 19-year-old Hallie Anderson of Scottsbluff, Neb., and 19-year-old Tyler Hill of Lyman, Neb., were transported to Regional West Medical Center in Scottsbluff.

Officials say, during the crash, Hill and Anderson were partially ejected from Kaufman’s vehicle – all six individuals were not wearing seatbelts.

Highway patrol officials believe speed and alcohol use were contributing factors in the crash.

UPDATE 2:55 p.m. Thursday – Wyoming Highway Patrol Sgt. Stephen Townsend says 19-year-old Hallie Anderson of Scottsbluff, Neb., was pronounced dead shortly after 1:00 p.m. Thursday at Regional West Medical Center in Scottsbluff.
