BUTTE – A 78-year-old man from Arizona died in a roll-over crash on Interstate 15 south of Butte Monday evening.

The man was driving a 2016 Nissan Rogue northbound about 30 miles south of Butte when he lost control of his vehicle just before 8 p.m., according to the Montana Highway Patrol.

The vehicle overturned, hit a guardrail and came to rest in the median.

The driver, who was from Tucson,  was transported to St. James HealthCare in Butte where he died from his injuries.

MHP does not suspect drugs, alcohol, or speed as factors in the accident. The man — who was alone in the vehicle — was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash.
