BILLINGS- One man died in a single-vehicle crash that happened Friday night north of Billings.

The wreck happened just before 11 p.m. west of the airport at the intersection of Highway 3 and Apache Trail.

Montana Highway Patrol Trooper David Hankins says the driver of a pickup truck was headed north on Highway 3 when he swerved off the road.

Trooper Hankins said the vehicle traveled several hundred feet before the driver overcorrected, causing the vehicle to roll over several times.

The male was unconscious when authorities arrived at the scene and was taken to an area hospital with critical injuries.

Alcohol is a suspected factor in this crash.
