A one-vehicle rollover claimed the life of a Box Elder man on Friday evening.
The accident occurred on Lower Box Elder Road several miles east of Box Elder.
The Montana Highway Patrol was dispatched shortly before 9 p.m.
The vehicle was westbound when the driver entered a left-hand curve too fast.
The vehicle left the road and rolled.
The 23-year old driver, identified as Shawn Saddler, was ejected and pronounced dead at the scene.
