Riverton Man Dies In One-Vehicle Rollover Crash
A Riverton man died in a single vehicle rollover crash on Wednesday, according to the Wyoming Highway Patrol.
Daniel W. Oberlie, 57, was driving a cement truck southbound on Wyoming Highway 135 about 15 miles south of Riverton when it drifted off the west side of the highway at 1:10 p.m., according to a press release from Highway Patrol Sgt. David Wagener
Oberlie overcorrected the truck back onto the highway, crossed both lanes of traffic, and left the road, this time to the east. The truck tripped and rolled.
He was not wearing his seat belt, was partially ejected from the truck, and died at the scene.
The crash temporarily closed the highway.
Driver inattention is being investigated as the contributing factor in the 25th highway fatality in Wyoming for 2015.
