Two Wyoming residents were killed yesterday, Sept. 8, when a van collided with their motorcycle south of Rock Springs.
The crash happened around 10:37 a.m. near milepost 516 on U.S. 191.
The Wyoming Highway Patrol says the driver of a van was northbound when he crossed the centerline and collided with an oncoming motorcycle being driven by 68-year-old Steven Powell.
Powell and his passenger, 73-year-old Emma Powell, were both wearing helmets, but died at the scene. The van driver was not injured in the crash.
The patrol says speed, driver inattention and driver fatigue/asleep are being investigated as possible contributing factors.
