A Bairoil woman died in a collision north of Rawlins during a rainstorm on Sunday, according to a news release from the Wyoming Highway Patrol.

Linda J. Brantner, 64, was driving a Chevrolet pickup northbound on U.S. Highway 287 about 16 miles north of Rawlins, according to the news release from Patrol Sgt. David Wagener.

At 5 p.m., Jeep driven by Robert Harlow, 58, of Oceanside, Calif., was traveling southbound on the highway.

Brantner's pickup hydroplaned on the wet road, and crossed the center line perpendicular to the southbound lane in front of Harlow's vehicle. Harlow's Jeep was unable to avoid colliding with Brantner's vehicle.

She was wearing her seat belt but died at the scene.
Harlow and his passenger, 59-year-old Susan Harlow, were wearing their seat belts, but sustained injuries. They were taken by ground ambulance to the Memorial Hospital of Carbon County in Rawlins.
Robert Harlow was treated and released. Susan Harlow was hospitalized, and her condition was unknown as of noon Monday.
The crash temporarily closed U.S. Highway 287 from 5:17 p.m. to 6:29 p.m.
The Highway Patrol is investigating speeding too fast for the wet road conditions and the worn tire conditions of the pickup as contributing factors in the crash.
This marks the 67th highway fatality in Wyoming for 2015 compared to 70 fatalities at this time last year.
