POLSON – A 22-year-old Elmo man is dead after an early morning rollover accident north of Polson.

Montana Highway Patrol Trooper John Raymond says the crash happened on Highway 93 near mile marker 64 around 8 a.m on Tuesday.

The man rolled his vehicle and was ejected as the vehicle landed in the ditch. He was not wearing a seatbelt.

Raymond says the highway was slick, as road conditions were icy and covered in slush at the time.

It’s unclear at this time if alcohol or drugs are factors in the deadly crash.

The MHP is continuing to investigate the accident.
