A Hardin man died Monday night in a rollover crash south of Busby, according to the Montana Highway Patrol.

Fletcher Metcalf, 25, was headed northeast on Highway 314 when his White Dodge truck went off the road, and he over corrected, troopers said Tuesday.

The truck then rolled twice, troopers said Tuesday. It's unclear whether he was wearing a seat belt.

The vehicle had one passenger, a 23-year-old woman, who was wearing a seat belt and was transported to a Billings hospital.

Troopers said they believe speed and alcohol were factors.

The fatality marks at leastthe 10th death on Montana's roads since Friday.
