Man survives rollover in Billings

Billings police responded to a rollover accident at State and Underpass avenues just after 10 p.m. on Thursday and arrived to find a truck on its roof in the middle of the intersection.

Billings police say that the driver of the vehicle was heading north on Calhoun Lane and failed to turn on to Underpass Avenue.

The truck careened through a field directly north of Calhoun Lane and struck a light pole, causing the truck to roll, and then land in the south- bound lanes of Underpass Avenue.

The male driver of the vehicle was conscious and breathing at the time of medical services arriving on scene, and was taken to Billings Clinic with injuries that are not believed to be life-threatening.

Billings police say that speed was a factor in the accident, adding that they are continuing their investigation.
