BUTTE - A man is dead following a rollover crash south of the Mining City.
The accident happened Thursday around 10:30 p.m. near Moose Creek Road and Roosevelt Drive.
The Montana Highway Patrol says a Dodge Durango with four young adult males was traveling too fast on the icy road. The vehicle went over an embankment and rolled.
A Butte man was ejected from the backseat and died at the scene.
The three other men were taken to St. James Hospital with injuries. Two have been released, but one remains hospitalized.
Troopers say they are investigating whether alcohol was involved.
None of the four men were wearing seat belts.
The name of the man killed has not yet been released.
