Powder River County Coroner Gary Gatlin on Friday identified a man who died in a one-vehicle rollover on Wednesday as Bob Dean Long, 57, of Springville, Utah.

The Montana Highway Patrol said earlier that the accident happened at 12:40 p.m. when a pickup truck southbound on Highway 59 veered off to the left side of the road, overcorrected and went off the roadway. The truck rolled several times before coming to rest on its top.

The driver, who was restrained by a seat belt, died at the scene. The patrol said speed was a factor but that it was unknown whether alcohol was involved.
