BEAVERHEAD COUNTY — A man died in a single-vehicle rollover crash north of Dillon Saturday morning, according to the Montana Highway Patrol.
MHP said dispatch received the call at 9:24 a.m. Saturday. The exact time of the crash is undetermined but believed to have occurred around midnight Saturday on MT Highway 41.
A 24-year-old Dillon man was driving southbound on MT-41 when his Dodge Ram pickup drifted over the center line. He over-corrected to the right and slid sideways into a ditch, MHP said.
The man was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected as the vehicle rolled several times.
MHP said the truck's tires were sheared off before it landed upright at 10129 MT-41. The man was pronounced dead at the scene.
Alcohol and speed are suspected as factors in the crash.
The name of the man has not yet been released; we will update you if we get more information.
