(Fremont County, WY) – A single vehicle rollover crash occurring on Plunkett Road around 8:40 PM, September 1st, resulted in one fatality, according to a Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) preliminary report.
The driver has been identified as 34-year-old Wyoming resident Jessica Teton.
The report states that Teton’s vehicle was northbound on Plunkett Road when it exited the roadway to the right.
The driver then over-corrected the vehicle to left, back onto the roadway, when it entered a passenger-side leading slide.
The vehicle entered the southbound borrow ditch and vaulted over the right-of-way fence, and impacted the far side of an irrigation canal.
The vehicle came to a rest with the front end submerged in the water, the rear end in the air, and the bottom of the vehicle facing southbound.
Speed is being looked into as a contributing factor, and the report states that no seatbelt was in use.
This is the 75th fatality on Wyoming’s roadways in 2021, compared to 87 in 2020, 110 in 2019, and 75 in 2018 to date.
