DOUGLAS, Wyo. (AP) - Drinking is suspected of contributing to a head-on collision that killed two people on Interstate 25 west of Douglas.

The Wyoming Highway Patrol says 39-year-old Craig B. Powell, of Saratoga, was driving the wrong way on the highway when he collided with a vehicle driven by 55-year-old Kevin S. Martin, of Rock Springs early Sunday morning. Another driver saw Powell headed the wrong way and was able to swerve to avoid a crash.

It was one of four fatal accidents over the weekend in Wyoming.

In a separate accident at about 2:15 a.m. Sunday, the patrol says 25-year-old Mason W. Fisher, of Gillette, died when his car went off state highway 51 in northeast Wyoming and rolled.

Two motorcyclists also were killed in separate accidents.
