CHEYENNE, Wyo. — A 24-year-old Wyoming man died Sunday, June 26, in a single-vehicle rollover crash on Wyoming Highway 70 near mile marker 47 in Carbon County.

The man was driving east on Highway 70 near Encampment when, at 5:25 a.m., his Toyota Tacoma entered a passenger-side slide after failing to negotiate a left curve, according to a Wyoming Highway Patrol report.

The Tacoma tripped and rolled multiple times, the highway patrol reported.

The report lists driver fatigue or falling asleep behind the wheel as contributing factors in the crash. The weather was clear and the road was dry. The man was not wearing a seatbelt, according to the highway patrol.
