CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP/CBS4) – Five people died in four accidents last weekend on Wyoming roads, including a man from Colorado.

The Wyoming Highway Patrol says two died in a head-on collision on Interstate 25 about 1:25 a.m. Sunday west of Douglas.

It says a car driven 39-year-old Craig B. Powell, of Saratoga, was traveling in the wrong direction on Interstate 25 when it collided with a vehicle driven by 55-year-old Kevin S. Martin, of Rock Springs.

In a separate accident at about 2:15 a.m. Sunday, the patrol says 25-year-old Mason W. Fisher, of Gillette, died when his car went off state highway 51 in northeast Wyoming and rolled.

And two motorcyclists also were killed in separate accidents.

The patrol identified them as 51-year-old Stuart Schmidt, of Casper, and 70-year-old Daniel R. Shaffer, of Clark, Colo.
