Gillette woman killed in crash

GILLETTE, Wyo. (KOTA TV) - A 30-year-old Gillette woman died in a two-vehicle crash within city limits Friday night.

Lindsey Konyn was driving eastbound on Southern Drive when, according to the Wyoming Highway Patrol, she failed to negotiate a curve and crossed into the westbound lane, hitting a pickup. Konyn succumbed to her injuries at the scene.

The 29-year-old driver of the pickup, Devon Erickson of Gillette, was not injured.

The highway patrol believes driving too fast for winter conditions might have been one of the contributing factors. The road was ice- and snow-covered at the time of the crash.

This was the 27th death on Wyoming roads so far this year; 15 more than last year at this time.
