A Greybull, Wyo., man died Sunday after he was thrown from a car during a rollover crash in northern Wyoming.
According to the Wyoming Highway Patrol, 62-year-old Jimmy D. Soetmelk was driving a Buick Century southbound on Highway 20 about six miles south of Basin when the car drifted off the west side of the road at about 11:30 a.m.
According to the patrol, Soetmelk over-corrected and the Buick slid into the oncoming traffic lane before going off the east side of the road and rolling several times.
As the Buick rolled, Soetmelk, who was not wearing a seat belt, was thrown from the car, the highway patrol said. He was declared dead at the scene.
The Wyoming Highway patrol continues to investigate the crash and is awaiting results of a toxicology test, a highway patrol press release said.
