RIVERTON, Wyo. (AP) - The Fremont County coroner has ruled that a 17-year-old girl whose body was found in February near Riverton died of hypothermia.

The Riverton Ranger reports (https://bit.ly/1qlUhWO ) the body of Adrianna Goggles, who was reported missing, was found Feb. 27 on the Wind River Indian Reservation. Authorities had discovered her wrecked car a day earlier near Fort Washakie.

Her death has been listed as an accident.

An online fundraiser for the Fort Washakie teen’s family says she had gotten into a car accident and tried to make it to safety but was exposed to cold temperatures.

Goggles’ death comes after another teen died of hypothermia on the reservation in January. Coroner Mark Stratmoen said 18-year-old Jeffrey Brown, whose body was found Jan. 28, had been inappropriately dressed for the cold weather.
