HARTVILLE, Wyo. - A Rapid City teenager has died from her injuries after a rollover in Wyoming.

Five people were involved in a one-vehicle rollover Saturday evening, near Hartville, Wyo. Wyoming Highway Patrol Troopers responded to the crash at milepost 510 on WY 270.

Lilly Nehring, 13, was one of two juvenile passengers transported by helicopter to Regional West Medical Center in Scottsbluff, Neb. Nehring later died of her injuries there. 

The female driver was also taken to Regional West Medical Center. The other two passengers were transported by ambulance to Wheatland, Wyo. Everyone in the vehicle was wearing a seat belt.

The Wyoming Highway Patrol said the 2003 Ford Excursion drifted off the road for reasons unknown, striking a delineator and mile marker post. The driver over-corrected to the left, entering the southbound right-of-way and rolling several times until the vehicle came to a rest on its roof.

This is the 97th fatality on Wyoming’s highways in 2017 compared to 80 in 2016, 100 in 2015, and 100 in 2014.
