La Rocco, who was not buckled up, was thrown from the driver’s seat to the back seat and was found slumped over the back of the driver’s seat, according to a crash summary.

He was flown by helicopter to the University of Utah hospital in Salt Lake City, where he died upon arrival.

The patrol says a possible medical condition is being investigated as a possible contributing factor.

This is the 19th fatality on Wyoming's roadways in 2022 compared to 25 in 2021, 19 in 2020, and 39 in 2019 to date.
