MISSOULA — A car went off a curve after passing another vehicle on Interstate 90 near Superior on Thursday night, rolling two times and killing the driver, the Montana Highway Patrol said.

The crash happened about 5 p.m. and closed I-90 for more than four hours as crews treated victims and cleared the wreckage.

The driver, a man from Olympia, Wash., was killed in the crash. His two passengers, also of Olympia, were transported to St. Patrick Hospital in Missoula with injuries that were not life-threatening.

The vehicle was headed east on I-90 when it went off a curve after passing another vehicle. The driver overcorrected, and the car spun around and rolled two times before landing in the westbound lanes, the patrol said.
