A South Carolina man died and two others were injured on Sunday evening in a rollover crash near Terry.

According to the Montana Highway Patrol, the 40-year-old man, whose name has not been released, was driving a Chevrolet pickup truck southbound on 10-mile Road when, at about 6:30 p.m., he tried to pass another vehicle.

The pickup hit a rough patch on the road, about a mile south of Terry, and began to fishtail. When the driver overcorrected, the pickup began to skid and rolled 1 1/2 times, the patrol said.

Two other men, ages 21 and 23, were riding in the pickup.

The driver and one of the passengers were thrown from the pickup during the crash. Emergency crews declared the driver dead at the scene.

Nobody was wearing a seat belt and highway patrol investigators believe that both alcohol and excessive speed played a role in the crash.

One of the passengers was taken to St. Vincent Healthcare in Billings while the other was treated at a hospital in Terry.

The crash remains under investigation.
