LIBBY - A man died in a one-car crash in Lincoln County on Friday.

The crash happened at about 11:40 a.m. on Highway 482 about three miles south of Libby.

According to the Montana Highway Patrol, the 55-year-old man from Libby — the only occupant of the Mazda MX-5 — was heading south when he failed to negotiate a left corner.

He then went off the right side of the road, crashing into a tree.

The man, whose name has not been released at this point, died at the scene.

The man was not wearing a seatbelt, according to the MHP.

The MHP says the road was dry and bare at the time of the crash, and that alcohol may have been a factor.
