Tennessee man dies in crash near Bozeman

BOZEMAN -- A man from Tennessee died in a crash on I-90 just after 9 p.m. on Friday.

The Montana Highway Patrol says the victim is a 31-year-old man from Tennessee.

He was driving a Honda Accord in the westbound lane of I-90 near mile marker 303 when he clipped the bumper of a Dodge pickup truck.

The Tennessee man lost control of the car, flipped in and out of the median, rolled back on to the highway and slid into a ditch.

He was not wearing a seat-belt and was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the pickup, a 43-year-old Belgrade man, was wearing a seat-belt and didn't sustain any injuries in the wreck.

MHP says speed is a factor but it is unknown if alcohol played a role.

The name of the victim has not been released yet.
