An accident on I-90 on Sunday afternoon sent one Missoula man to the hospital.
According to Montana Highway Patrol Trooper Mike Burman, the call came in just before 1:30 p.m.
The 25-year-old driver was attempting to head east on I-90, when he lost control on the entrance ramp near the Wye.
The vehicle slid into a light pole, before rolling down an embankment.
Burman says he believes the man bent down to pick up his cell phone when he lost control.
Numerous units responded to the accident.
The driver was transported to St. Patrick Hospital in Missoula with non-life threatening issues.
Officials believe speed may have been a factor.
