   The Wyoming Highway Patrol says 24-year-old Kyra Stoner was northbound on Hwy 789 about 30 miles southwest of Rawlins a little after 6:00 when her midsized car crossed the centerline and collided head-on with an oncoming pickup.

       Stoner was not wearing her seat belt and died from her injuries. Another person was also injured, but the Highway Patrol summary didn’t specify injuries of if was the other driver or a passenger in one of the vehicles.
