(Cheyenne) – A 12-year-old Oregon girl died in a one-vehicle roll-over on Interstate 80 about nine miles east of Lyman yesterday afternoon.

The Wyoming Highway Patrol says the vehicle Luvenia Santana was riding in went out of control and rolled three times partially ejecting her.

The child was wearing her seatbelt improperly with the shoulder portion of the belt behind her back but the driver and two other passengers were wearing their seatbelts properly and suffered only minor injuries.

The Highway Patrol reminds motorists that an improperly worn seatbelt does not provide sufficient protection and in fact at times contributes to significant injury.
