GREAT FALLS — One person died and two people were injured in a one-vehicle crash in Glacier County on Thursday, December 7, 2023.
The crash happened at about 6:30 p.m. near the intersection of Badger Creek Road and Larson Drive, several miles north of Heart Butte.
According to the Montana Highway Patrol, there were three people in a Dodge Durango: a 39-year old man from Browning, who was driving; a 37-year old man from Missoula; and a 40-year old man from Browning.
The MHP crash report says they were westbound on Badger Creek Road when the vehicle drifted off the right side of the road; the driver over-corrected, and the vehicle crossed the center line and off the left side of the road.
The driver again over-corrected, sending the vehicle into a spin and off the road, where it rolled over several times.
The 40-year old man from Browning died at the scene; his name has not been released at this point.
The other two men were taken to the Indian Health Service clinic in Browning; the nature and extent of their injuries was not disclosed.
According to the MHP, the roads were icy at the time; none of the three men were wearing seatbelts; and alcohol is suspected as a factor in the crash.
