Authorities identify victim of fatal Stockett crash

The Cascade County Sheriff's Office has identified Virginia L. Antonich as the woman who died in a one-vehicle rollover in Stockett on Sunday.

It happened sometime early Sunday near the intersection of Stockett Road and Cottonwood Coulee Road.

The rollover was reported at about 11 a.m. on Sunday, but the Montana Highway Patrol believes the accident happened several hours earlier, sometime after midnight.

The MHP says that that Antonich, 22 years old, died after being ejected from the vehicle when it rolled.

A male passenger was also in the vehicle; officials say he suffered injuries from the crash, and also hypothermia after being stranded in the cold for several hours.

The nature and extent of his injuries has not been released.

Troopers say it appears the vehicle drifted into the wrong lane and rolled when Antonich attempted to overcorrect on a gravel road.

The MHP says that neither of the occupants were wearing their seatbelts.

Authorites have not released the name of the male passenger.
