Two men were involved in a crash in Glacier County that left one of them dead late Thursday afternoon. Police said the other victim suffered serious injuries in the crash.
Montana Highway Patrol reported that the crash only involved a single vehicle, a Dodge Ram truck. The two victims were both males in their early thirties. Investigators believe the truck veered off the road, swerved back suddenly, rolled over and up a hill, and then back down again.
Neither victims were wearing seatbelts at the time of the crash and both men were ejected from the truck. Emergency responders declared the driver of the truck to be dead at the scene of the crash. The passenger, however, was in critical condition and was rushed to a hospital in Cut Bank for treatment. His injuries were so serious he was promptly transferred to the Benefis Health System in Great Falls.
Montana Highway Patrol believes alcohol was likely the cause of the crash, but are still investigating.
Neither victim has been identified at this time.
