MISSOULA — A Eureka man died Friday in a one-vehicle crash near Rexford in Lincoln County.

The Montana Highway Patrol reported the 50-year-old was driving a Chevy Silverado northbound on a forest development road (FR92) when he failed to negotiate a sharp turn and collided with a guardrail at about 3 p.m. He was not wearing a seat belt.

The car went over the guardrail down a steep slope and collided with a boulder. It then came to rest and caught fire.

The Lincoln County Fire Department and Montana Highway Patrol responded shortly after the crash. The man was dead on arrival.

The exact location of the crash was the intersection of FR 92 and NFD Road 556. Road conditions were bare and dry.
