Cheyenne, WY (KGWN) - A Rolling Hills, Wyoming, man was killed in a two car accident near Douglas Sunday.

Nathan Bussey, 34 or Rolling Hills Wyoming, was killed after a rollover accident involving two cars.

Anderson King, 26 of Vanderwagen, NM was northbound in a 1996 Chevy Silverado, on Hwy 59 when Driver he observed a blue Nissan, driven by Bussey, stopped at the stop sign on Flat Top road. For reasons unknown, Bussey began to drive straight onto Hwy 59 at a very slow speed, and was blocking the northbound lane. Anderson moved into the southbound lane to avoid Bussey. Bussey continued driving straight onto Hwy 59 and was blocking both lanes of travel. Anderson struck Bussey in "t-bone" fashion, which caused Bussey to enter the southbound ditch and roll multiple times. During the rollover, Bussey was partially ejected. Anderson came to rest in the southbound ditch. Both vehicles sustained catastrophic damage. Troopers continue to investigate but believe fatigue may have been a contributing factor.

Anderson and his passenger, Ricky Devore, 24 of Continental Divide, NM were treated at a local hospital and released.

The accident occurred on WYO 59, 8.75 miles north of Douglas

Both Anderson and Devore were wearing seat belts, Bussey was not.
