A Wolf Point man died early Sunday in a rollover crash in Roosevelt County.

According to the Montana Highway Patrol, a Ford pickup was southbound on Highway 13 outside of Wolf Point when it veered off of the road a little after 1 a.m.

The driver overcorrected and the Ford spun across both lanes of traffic and off the east side of the highway. It then went into a field and rolled at least once.

The driver and passenger were thrown from the pickup as it rolled. A Wolf Point man, 56, died at the scene, while a 38-year-old man from Everett, Wash., was taken by ambulance to Trinity Hospital in Wolf Point. His condition was not available.

The men's names have not been released.

It wasn't immediately clear who was driving the pickup when it crashed.

Investigators believe alcohol played a role in the crash.
