Forty-four year old Melinda Gregston was riding westbound on a 2014 Harley Davidson near mile marker 1 on U.S. Highway 26. Around 6:30 p.m., she had to brake hard to avoid colliding with another vehicle, according to the Wyoming Highway Patrol.
Gregston, who was wearing a helmet, lost control of the motorcycle and crashed. She died from her injuries at the scene of the crash.
The Wyoming Highway Patrol says driver inattention is being investigated as a possible contributing factor.
