EVANSTON, Wyo. (AP) - Authorities say an Evanston teen has died in a southwestern Wyoming crash after trying to pass a vehicle on the highway.

The Rock Springs Rocket-Miner reports (http://bit.ly/27R16AY ) that 18-year-old Christine Finney died after the Sunday crash near Evanston.

Authorities say Finney had been headed north on Wyoming State Highway 89 when she attempted to pass a vehicle in front of her. The teen had overcorrected after finding the southbound lane already occupied by another car, causing her truck to spin.

Finney’s vehicle crossed into the southbound lane and collided with a vehicle driven by 18-year-old Adam Mueske, also of Evanston.

Finney was taken to a hospital and later died.

Mueske and his two passengers remained hospitalized Monday.

The Sunday crash marked the 20th highway fatality in Wyoming this year.
