GREAT FALLS - A 51-year-old Great Falls man died in a single-vehicle rollover west of town and his wife was seriously injured.

The Montana Highway Patrol says it happened at about 9 p.m. Monday on McIver Road, about five miles west of Great Falls.

Trooper Mike Flood says Gustavo Siliezar died at the scene. His wife, Linda Siliezar, was transported by Mercy Flight to Benefis Health System in Great Falls. She was being treated for broken bones.

Flood says Gustavo Siliezar was driving, and failed to negotiate a left-hand curve, causing his vehicle to hit a ditch on the right side of the road and overturn. Both driver and passenger were ejected from the vehicle.

The patrol officer says neither Gustavo nor Linda Siliezar were wearing seatbelts.
