Update: Man killed in crash north of Billings identified

Posted: Updated:

BILLINGS - An elderly Montana man was killed in a rollover crash on U.S. Highway 87 between Billings and Roundup on Tuesday morning.

The victim was identified by the Yellowstone County Coroner as Walter Franklin Williamson, 76, of Lewistown.

Trooper Kristy Kees with the Montana Highway Patrol said Williamson was traveling south when his Chevrolet van drifted off the right side of the road.

Kees said when Williamson tried to steer the van back onto the road, he over corrected and veered off the left side of the road, causing the van to roll.

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

Other drivers began reporting the crash at 6:46 a.m. at mile marker 20.

An investigation is underway to determine the cause of the crash, but Kees said it appears Williamson was not wearing a seat belt.

No other vehicles were involved in the wreck and WIlliamson was the van’s only occupant.
