Weekend Crash In Lincoln County Kills Two
Two Opal, Wyoming, residents were killed in a crash in Lincoln County over the weekend. The Wyoming Highway Patrol reports 55-year-old Joyce Wolf was westbound on Lincoln County Road #340 around 7:00 p.m. Saturday, when her Jeep went off the road about 8 miles north of Opal. Investigators say Wolf tried to bring the vehicle back onto the road, but overcorrected and the vehicle rolled several times. Wolf and two passengers were ejected from the Jeep.
Wolf and 35-year-old Quincy Ashment died in the crash. Another passenger was airlifted to a Salt Lake City hospital for treatment. Troopers say no one in the vehicle was wearing a seat belt, and investigators believe excessive speed, along with suspected drug or alcohol use contributed to the crash.
