A 23-year-old Roundup man with a revoked license was taken to Billings Clinic by ambulance after rolling his Pontiac Sunfire in a ditch near Billings Sunday afternoon.
The incident occurred at about 2:30 p.m. at mile marker 6 of Highway 87, said Montana Highway Patrol Trooper, Kyle Hater.
Two fire trucks, an ambulance MHP and the Yellowstone County Sheriff's Office responded to the crash. His injuries were not life-threatening
According to statements by the driver and other motorists on the road, he was in a rush to get to work and was passing drivers as he neared Billings, Hayter said.
When the man tried to pass a vehicle in a no-passing zone, he realized another vehicle was coming straight at him after he crested of a hill.
He left the roadway to avoid the car, hit the ditch and rolled over.
He was wearing a seat belt, and was not ejected. Alcohol was not a factor, Hayter said.
The man, whose name has not been released until family is notified, was cited for operating with a revoked driver's licence and reckless driving.
Hayter believed the man's license was revoked, because he had too many traffic infractions.
