A 52-year-old Miles City man who died after a single-vehicle crash west of Glendive on Jan. 2 has been identified.

Dawson County Deputy Coroner Tyler Silha said Gary Chamberlain was pronounced dead Sunday at Billings Clinic.

Montana Highway Patrol Trooper Tristan Brown said Chamberlain was traveling eastbound in a semi-trailer on Interstate 94, about seven miles west of Glendive, when he lost control of the trailer and overturned it onto its left side at about 6:40 a.m.

The passenger, a 41-year-old Miles City man, suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was taken to Glendive Medical Center.

Chamberlain was also taken to Glendive Medical Center and then flown to Billings Clinic, where he was pronounced dead four days later.

Both men were wearing seat belts.

Ice-covered roads, blowing snow and strong crosswinds were considered factors in the crash, Brown said.
