RIVERTON, Wyo. (AP) - The Fremont County Coroner’s Office has ruled the death of a 19-year-old Riverton man involved in a one-vehicle rollover a homicide.

Clay D. Walters died Jan. 11 due to head and neck trauma from a single-vehicle rollover with ejection south of Riverton.

Authorities say Walters is believed to have been a passenger in a vehicle that rolled after the driver failed to negotiate a curve in the roadway. Officials said the vehicle overturned at least three times, and several passengers were ejected, including Walters.

There were four others involved who received varying degrees of injury.

The Riverton Ranger reports (https://bit.ly/1zcVttc ) that investigators are trying to determine who was driving the vehicle. They suspect alcohol as a possible contributing factor in the crash.
