BOZEMAN — MHP Trooper Jay Nelson told MTN News that dispatch reported a rollover crash on the interstate at 12:22 p.m.

According to the MHP, a 29-year old man from Missoula died at the scene. His name has not yet been released, pending notification of family. The man reportedly was wearing his seatbelt.

The crash report said the driver was eastbound on I-90 when he went off the left side of the road, turned right, and overcorrected. He overcorrected again, putting the vehicle into a counterclockwise spin into the median. The vehicle rolled across the westbound lanes of I-90 and came to rest just off the westbound shoulder.

Nelson says with the help of several witnesses who took video of the crash, he wants to get the word out that they are trying to find "someone who may have been a factor in what caused this crash" so they can talk with them and "rule them out."
