HARDIN - A man from Colorado died in a one-vehicle rollover in Big Horn County on Saturday morning.
The Montana Highway Patrol reports a 1987 Ford pick-up truck was heading south on Montana Highway 47 at mile marker 15.5 between Custer and Hardin at 1:40 a.m. when the driver fell asleep and missed a curve.
Authorities say the truck went off the road and rolled multiple times, ejected the driver, and then the vehicle landed on him.
Troopers determined that the 30-year old man had died when they arrived, and say alcohol was a factor in the crash.
