Fremont County Sheriff's Capt. Ryan Lee said the condition of Krisanda Chaffin, 23, of Lander, was unknown as of Tuesday morning.
Deputies were dispatched to the intersection of Rocky Ridge and Lyons Valley roads at 12:35 a.m. for a report of a one-vehicle rollover. An ambulance bus and Lander Rural Fire Department also responded to the incident.
"We assisted the EMS," Rural chief Dave Peevey said. "The one driver in the vehicle was already out of the vehicle when we got there."
Lee said Chaffin was operating a 2007 Dodge pickup truck when she lost control on the roadway, and the vehicle rolled three times, ejecting her it.
At this time, Lee said it is unknown if Chaffin, who was the sole occupant, was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash.
"We don't believe (alcohol was involved) at this time, but it's still under investigation," Lee said.
The Sheriff's Office is handling the investigation.
