Another crash on a Montana roadway claimed a life early Saturday morning.

Montana Highway Patrol reports a 24-year-old man on an ATV slammed into a tree shortly after midnight.

The crash occurred west of White Sulphur Springs along U.S. Highway 12.

According to MHP, the man was northbound on Spring Creek Road.

He was unable to navigate a turn causing him to drift off the road and strike a tree.
