ELKO — A fatal accident east of Elko took the life of an Elko woman early Thursday afternoon.

Sheryle Lorenger, 70, was driving her Ford pickup west on Interstate 80 when, for an unknown reason, she allowed her vehicle to drift into the median, where it overturned, according to the Nevada Highway Patrol.

Lorenger was ejected during the rollover. NHP responded to the accident at about 1:50 p.m., and Lorenger was declared dead at the scene.

She was not wearing a seatbelt, and the NHP states driver inattention was a contributing factor to the accident.
