Two local teens fatally injured in one-car rollover accident

Tara Wasson, 16, and Leslie Jergenson, 17, were killed in a one-car rollover Sunday, Sept. 27 at 4 p.m.

According to Niobrara County Sheriff's office spokesperson, Wasson was driving westbound on County Road 14-69 when she lost control of the vehicle on a hill. The car skidded off the south side of the road and went through a right-of-way fence.

The car rolled three times, coming to rest on its wheels.

Although both girls were wearing seatbelts, Wasson was ejected from the vehicle.

Both girls were pronounced dead at the scene. The Niobrara County Sheriff's office is in charge of the investigation with assistance from the Wyoming Highway Petrol. The Lusk Police Department, Niobrara County Ambulance Service and Lusk Volunteer Fire Department also responded.

The cause of the accident is still under investigation.
