CODY, Wyo. (AP) - Speeding and alcohol use are believed to have contributed to a crash that killed a 25-year-old man and injured his three passengers in Powell.

The Park County Sheriff’s Office says Matthew Joseph McNamara of Cody died after he lost control on a curve on Sunday, swerved into the oncoming lane and then over-corrected and rolled off the road. One of his passengers, 23-year-old Sean Michael Roberts, told investigators that they were driving at 55 mph at the time of the crash, which investigators say was too fast for the area.

Roberts and 21-year-old Elizabeth Gurrola were flown to St. Vincent Hospital in Billings, Montana after the crash. A third passenger, 24-year-old Joe Fred Walker, was treated and released from Powell Valley Hospital. The passengers are all from Powell.
