A 56-year-old woman from Basin was killed and three others hospitalized in a two-vehicle crash Saturday near Meeteetse.

Wyoming Highway Patrol investigating trooper Rich Scovel said all of those hospitalized were in serious condition.

The woman from Basin was declared dead on the scene after she and the driver of the 2001 Subaru Legacy she was a passenger in were ejected. Neither was wearing a seat belt.

Scovel said the Subaru had pulled out onto WYO 120 South from County Road 3LE just after 11 a.m. The driver of the vehicle did not make a complete stop as it turned toward Meeteetse and did not see the F-150 pulling a camper driving north toward Cody.

“The truck driver saw the passenger vehicle and swerved left, and the vehicles impacted in the southbound lane of travel,” Scovel said.

The two occupants of the truck, an 80-year-old female and 87-year-old male, both from Torrington, were wearing their seat belts and stayed in the vehicle as it flipped over and dislodged the trailer.

Scovel said charges are likely and the investigation is ongoing. No names of those involved have been released.

He said the female passenger of the truck was flown by air ambulance to Billings and both drivers were taken to West Park Hospital, with one being transported to Billings afterward.

Scovel praised the Meeteetse Fire Department and county personnel for assistance and in getting one lane reopened on WYO 120 while crews worked to clean the wreckage.
