GREEN RIVER, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Highway Patrol says two people have died after two vehicles collided on an Interstate 80 exit ramp.

The crash occurred last Friday about 11:10 p.m. near Green River when a 2013 Dodge Ram exited the westbound interstate lane and was unable to avoid a 2013 Dodge Dart that was going to the wrong way on the same exit ramp.

Both occupants of the Dodge Dart died. They were identified as 42-year-old Green River resident Kelly Walk, who was driving, and a passenger identified as 41-year-old Green River resident Michelle Powers.

The driver of the Dodge Ram was injured and taken to a hospital in Utah for treatment.

The patrol says driver impairment on the part of Walk is being investigated as a possible contributing factor.
