GREEN RIVER, Wyo. - A Utah woman was killed in a rollover near Green River.

Thursday night, Wyoming Highway Patrol troopers responded to the crash at milepost 82.5 on Interstate 80. They found a 2009 Nissan Rogue crashed off the roadway. 

According to the WHP, the driver had traveled into the right-of-way for unknown reasons. That's when the driver over-corrected and rolled several times in the vehicle before being ejected.

The woman has been identified as 28-year-old Amee L Maeseele from Kearns, Utah.

The WHP is investigating driver attention as a contributing factor in the crash. 

This is the seventy-first fatality on Wyoming’s highways in 2017, compared to 48 in 2016 and 70 in 2015.
