Fatality Assessment and Control Evaluation (FACE) Report for Wyoming: Salesman Dies from Vehicle Rollover in Wyoming

A 45 year old male road salesperson died at the scene from injuries received when the car he was driving left an Interstate roadway at an estimated speed of 95 miles per hour and overturned. The driver, who was not wearing seat belts, was ejected from the vehicle. The vehicle rolled 2½ times, coming to rest on its top. Employers may be able to minimize the potential for occurrence of this type of incident through the following precautions: (1) Provide road salespersons with driver training similar to, or more intensive than, the National Safety Council Defensive Driving Course. (2) Periodically review driving habits with salespersons and counsel employees about safe driving as a company policy. (3) Establish, post, and enforce policy opposing moving traffic violations (especially speed and alcohol violations) and advocating use of occupant restraints.
