GREAT FALLS — A 21-year old woman from Box Elder died in a one-vehicle rollover crash on Saturday, November 20, 2021.

The crash was reported at 8:25 a.m. near Duck Creek Road and Foothill Road in Chouteau County.

According to the Montana Highway Patrol, the woman was eastbound on Duck Creek Road and failed to negotiate a right-hand curve.

The MHP says the vehicle "vaulted," causing it to hit the ground front-end first and then roll end-over-end.

The driver, who was wearing a seatbelt, died at the scene.

According to the MHP, speed was likely a factor in the crash; alcohol and/or drugs were not factors.

The driver was the only occupant of the vehicle.

The name of the woman has not yet been released.
