A 13-year-old girl died Saturday after an SUV drifted off a highway, overcorrected and rolled several times near Hartville.

Lilly Nehring, of Rapid City, South Dakota, died at Regional West Medical Center following the crash, according to the Wyoming Highway Patrol.

The Patrol says shortly after 4 p.m. Saturday, a 2003 Ford Excursion was northbound on WY 270. For unknown reasons, near milepost 510, the SUV drifted off the right side of the road, hitting a delineator and mile-marker post.

The driver then overcorrected her SUV to the left, entering the southbound right-of-way. The SUV rolled several times before coming to rest on its roof.

The driver and two juvenile passengers were taken by helicopter to Regional West Medical Center in Scottsbluff, Nebraska, where Nehring died.

Two other occupants of the SUV were taken by ambulance to Wheatland.

The Patrol says everyone inside the Ford was wearing their seat belts at the time of the crash.

Nehring’s death marks the 97th fatality on Wyoming highways in 2017. The same period in 2016 saw 80 deaths statewide, while 2015 and 2014 ¬†each saw 100 such fatalities.
