The man also was under the influence of methampethamine.

The Fremont County man who died last month in a one-vehicle rollover near Ethete was under the influence of alcohol and methamphetamine, toxicology reports showed, with a blood-alcohol content more than 250 percent of the legal limit.

Reynold S. Hereford, 46, died June 26 of head trauma from the accidental rollover.

Fremont Count Coroner Mark Stratmoen said Hereford was the only person involved in the crash.

Toxicology testing showed Hereford's blood-alcohol content was .207 at the time of his death, and he had 28 nanograms per milliliter of methamphetamine in his system.

Wyoming's legal limit for intoxicated driving is a blood-alcohol content of .08.

The incident was reported at about 1 a.m. June 26 on Yellow Calf Road east of Ethete. It is unknown exactly when Hereford died.

His obituary says he was born in Lander and was a lifelong resident of the Wind River Indian Reservation.
