Yellowstone County Sheriff Mike Linder identified a Molt man who died Friday in a two-vehicle crash on Highway 87 north of Billings as Daniel Charles Downs, 60.

Downs was driving a Ford pickup truck west on Shepherd Acton Road and didn't stop at a stop sign at Highway 87 north, according to the Montana Highway Patrol.

As the pickup went through the intersection, it collided with a northbound pickup at about 5 p.m.

Both pickups rolled into the west ditch and emergency crews worked for about an hour to remove Downs from his truck. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
