According to a fatality crash summary, Kyra Stoner was behind the wheel of a northbound Oldsmobile Alero when she crossed the centerline and collided head-on with an oncoming Toyota Tacoma.

Stoner was not wearing her seat belt and died from her injuries.

Another person was also injured in the crash, but the summary did not specify whether it was the driver of the pickup or a passenger and did not say what the extent of their injuries were.

The summary also did not list any possible contributing factors.

This is the 94th fatality on Wyoming's highways in 2023 compared to 83 in 2022, 74 in 2021, 82 in 2020, and 107 in 2019 to date; and the 10th fatality in Carbon County this year.

2022's Deadliest Wyoming County by Traffic Deaths

While car crashes can occur anywhere, some roads in Wyoming are more dangerous than others.

According to Wyoming Highway Patrol data, there were 117 fatal crashes in the Cowboy State in 2022 resulting in 133 deaths.

Of those fatal crashes, the majority (13.68%) occurred in Laramie County -- two in January, one in February, one in March, two in April, one in June, two in July, three in August, two in September, one in November, and one in December.

Sweetwater County saw the second most fatal crashes last year, 12, while Fremont and Lincoln counties each saw 10.

Albany and Park counties each recorded eight, and Campbell, Converse, and Natrona counties each tallied seven.

The deadliest 2022 crash in Laramie County took place on June 17 when two semis collided on Interstate 80 east of Cheyenne and immediately became engulfed in flames killing both drivers and a passenger.



Laramie County also saw two fatal crashes involving motorcyclists, two fatal crashes involving juveniles, and a fatal crash involving a pedestrian last year.
