The Montana Highway Patrol reports a 57-year-old Hamilton resident died in the crash, which happened shortly after 8:15 a.m. east of the Clinton exit.

The pickup truck driver overcorrected after going off the right side of the road causing the vehicle to go across the median and then overturn in the westbound lanes.
