An 18-year-old Terry man died Saturday night after being struck by a vehicle while at a party north of Miles City.

Montana Highway Patrol Trooper Michael Howell said the man, whose name has not been released, was apparently at "a big party" when the vehicle struck him. Officials are still trying to piece together what exactly happened and which vehicle struck him.

The incident was reported at 11:47 p.m. Saturday and happened on Deadman Road, about three miles north of the intersection with Highway 59.

Investigators with the MHP and Custer County Sheriff's Office are interviewing several possible witnesses, although Howell said everybody they've spoken with claims to have no knowledge of what happened.

"We don't have a driver or a vehicle (identified) yet," he said. "No one is claiming they're aware of hitting anything or anyone."

People at the party took the man to Holy Rosary Healthcare in Miles City, where he was declared dead.
