CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - Casper College officials say a 19-year-old student was killed in a crash near Wright.

College spokeswoman Lisa Icenogle tells The Casper Star-Tribune (https://goo.gl/LW46n9 ) that Megan Skinner was killed in the crash and 20-year-old Autumn Horneck was seriously injured.

The two were returning to Casper from Gillette when Skinner’s truck went off Highway 387 and rolled down an embankment. Neither of the women was wearing a seat belt.

Investigators believe the crash happened late Tuesday night. The wreck was discovered Wednesday morning.

It does not appear that alcohol or drugs were involved.

Casper College President Darren Divine says Skinner was an occupational therapy student from Colorado Springs, Colorado, who was active in the college’s music program and served as an ambassador in the Student Services Department.
