Alcohol is being investigated as a contributing factor in a crash that killed 24-year-old Shane Grove from Dubois on Tuesday.
The Wyoming Highway Patrol reports that Grove was speeding on WYO 230 and tried to pass an SUV as it was turning left onto County Road 201 east of Riverside. Grove’s truck hit the rear of the SUV. The passenger front tire came off of Grove’s pickup, causing it to go sideways then roll off the roadway.
Troopers report that Grove was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected during the rollover. He died at the scene of the crash.
Grove’s death is the 28th on Wyoming highways so far this year.
