BILLINGS –  One person died in a one-vehicle rollover accident on Sunday in Yellowstone County.

A female was traveling eastbound on Pryor Road when her vehicle went off the road for unknown reasons. The car rolled several times before coming to a stop.

The Montana Highway Patrol received a call about 9:30 a.m. on Sunday of an abandoned vehicle and when troopers arrived on the scene, first responders discovered the body of a deceased female.

She was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected from the vehicle. Alcohol and speed are considered factors in the crash.

The investigation is ongoing and is now being taken over by the Bureau of Indian Affairs.
