A Big Horn County man died early Saturday after crashing a vehicle outside the town of Wyola, according to the Montana Highway Patrol.

The 22-year-old victim was driving eastbound on Little Horn Road when the crash occurred, according to a report provided by MHP. It was reported Saturday morning.

The man's vehicle "traveled off road for an unknown reason, then vaulted over the intersection with Wyola Loop," the MHP report states. The vehicle appeared to have remained airborne for a distance of 130 feet, rotated in mid-air, then landed on its roof, according to the narrative.

The man was the only occupant and was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash. Alcohol and speed are suspected as possible factors in the crash, according to MHP.

The highway patrol trooper who investigated the crash could not be reached Sunday. Big Horn County Coroner Terry Bullis was also unavailable to provide the man's name, according to his office.
