A Missouri man was killed Friday in a vehicle rollover near Baggs, Wyo., according to a Wyoming Highway Patrol news release.
Delbert L. Shain, 84, of Eagleville, Mo., died at about 5 p.m. Friday at The Memorial Hospital in Craig, after the 2008 Ford pickup he was driving rolled once on Wyoming Highway 789 about four miles north of Baggs, the release stated.
A passenger — Bradley S. Shain, 35, of Glenwood, Iowa — was treated and released from the hospital.
It is unknown if the two men are related, Highway Patrol Spokesman Sgt. Stephen Townsend said.
The incident occurred when the vehicle drifted into the right-hand shoulder and Delbert Shain steered the vehicle to the left, causing the vehicle to enter the opposite lane. He overcorrected several more times before the truck slid across the center line and rolled once, according to the release.
Troopers have not determined how fast the vehicle was traveling when the rollover occurred, Highway Patrol Lt. Bob Garner said, adding that troopers think neither drugs nor alcohol were involved.
"We do not believe speed played a significant role in the cause of the crash," Garner said.
Instead, inattention appeared to have been the cause of the rollover, he said.
