CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - The Wyoming Highway Patrol says both the woman driving the wrong way who died and the woman she struck were drunk at the time of the crash on U.S. Highway 20-26 near Casper.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (https://goo.gl/ituEfr ) that 35-year-old Robin Venters, of Glenrock, died Friday after she crashed into another car while driving the wrong way. The other driver, 55-year-old Dodie MacDonald, of Casper, was taken to Wyoming Medical Center with severe injuries.

Trooper Jason Sawdon says MacDonald has been charged with driving under the influence and driving with a suspended license. He says it appears both drivers were impaired when they crashed.

Sawdon says there was no sign of either car breaking or swerving before the crash, which can indicate impairment because intoxicants can slow reactions.
