A 61-year-old Newcastle, Wyo., woman died Wednesday when her minivan flipped end over end 10 miles west of Upton, Wyo.

According to the Wyoming Highway Patrol, Colleen J. Pillion's Chrysler Town and Country was weaving in and out of her lane of travel as it headed west on U.S. Highway 16 around 8 a.m.

Witnesses said the vehicle drifted off the right side of the road where it hit an approach. The impact lifted the van into the air and it came down on its nose before flipping 1 1/2 times to land on its roof.

Pillon was wearing a seatbelt, but was ejected from her seat into the rear of the vehicle during the rollover.

The crash is still under investigation.
