Cheyenne, WY (KGWN) - A Sweetwater County woman was killed in a rollover accident on I-80 Saturday.

From the Wyoming Highway Patrol:

Overly was westbound on the I-80 service road. For reasons unknown, her vehicle crossed over and then drifted off the left side of the roadway whereupon she attempted to correct this by steering to the right but overcorrected the steering. The vehicle crossed the road again and then went off the right side at which time she overcorrected the steering to the left. This caused the vehicle to go into a broadside slide and then roll approximately 3 times. Overly was not wearing a seatbelt and was totally ejected from the vehicle during the rollover.
Troopers investigating this crash believe excessive speed is a contributing factor.

The accident occurred 4.5 miles east of Rock Springs
