Truck Rollover Kills Rock Springs Woman
A single vehicle rollover on September 10th, at 11:50 p.m., resulted in the 105th highway death in Wyoming for 2014. A pickup, driven by 54 year old Denise R. Olson of Rock Springs, was traveling south on WY 530 approximately 15 miles south of Green River. For some reason she left the road to the right and drove on the shoulder. She tried to steer to the left to re-enter the highway. That sent the truck into a slide. It tripped in the soft dirt of the shoulder and rolled two and one-half times coming to rest on the roof.
Denise Olson was wearing a seatbelt and was not ejected during the crash. She was flown by helicopter to University Hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah where she was pronounced dead.
