3rd teen dies from Friday night rollover west of Billings

{{featured_button_text}}

Three teens have died after a wreck Friday night west of Billings, and a fourth teen was taken to the hospital with injuries. 

The rollover took place at South 64th Street West, near the intersection with Danford Road, according to Montana Highway Patrol Trooper Eric Gardner.

The call came in at 8:54 p.m. Just one vehicle was involved. 

The teens' car was traveling southbound when it lost control and rolled, Gardner said.

In an update provided by the Highway Patrol on Saturday, the agency said the vehicle exited off the left side of the road and struck a fence before coming to rest in a field on its wheels. 

Two occupants, a 16-year-old boy and an 18-year-old woman, died immediately.

The 17-year-old male driver died later on Saturday, the agency said in an update. 

A fourth occupant, a 17-year-old boy, was also transported to the Billings Clinic for treatment. The extent of the boy's injuries was not immediately clear, Gardner had said. 

Speed and road conditions are both considered factors in the wreck. The case remains under investigation.  

All occupants were wearing seat belts except for the 16-year-old boy, according to the MHP crash report. 

The Yellowstone County Coroner's Office said identification of the decedents would not likely take place until Monday or later. 

On Feb. 2, a 17-year-old Billings girl died in a two-vehicle crash in Billings at the intersection of Rimrock Road and Virginia Lane.
