EVANSTON (WNE) — A 60-year-old Evanston was killed in a single-vehicle rollover early Wednesday morning north of town.
According to a press release from the Wyoming Highway Patrol, Craig A. Adkins died at the scene of the crash, which was reported at 4:29 a.m. Wednesday near milepost 12 on U.S. Hwy 189. Adkins was not wearing a seatbelt, according to the release.
“A 2002 Land Rover Discovery was headed north on US 189 when the vehicle drifted off the left side of the roadway before the driver overcorrected to the right,” the release states. “The vehicle exited the right side of the road and overturned.”
