Two Accidental Deaths Reported in Southern Wyoming
RAWLINS, Wyo. (AP) — Two accidental deaths were reported in southern Wyoming over the weekend.
The Carbon County sheriff’s office says a 13-year-old Utah boy died in an all-terrain vehicle crash on Saturday in the Ryan Park area.
Officers say the victim and his cousin were riding ATVs on a U.S. Forest Service road at around noon Saturday when the victim’s ATV struck a tree. Anthony Murry of West Jordan died at the scene.
A day earlier, 26-year-old Lane Swedlund of Laramie died in a rafting accident on the Encampment River.
An autopsy was planned to determine his cause of death. The sheriff’s office says neither Swedlund nor the other two occupants of the raft were wearing life vests.
