BUTTE – One man was killed in a Saturday afternoon rollover crash in Butte.

The Montana Highway Patrol reports at about 2:30 p.m. a 66-year-old man from Hall lost control near the Harrison Avenue on-ramp.

The man was pulling an overloaded trailer when his truck began to fish-tail. The trailer then broke off of the truck and came to rest on the median. The truck, originally going southbound, flipped and came to rest in the northbound passing lane.

Alcohol, drugs, and speed are not considered factors in the crash, and the man was wearing his seatbelt.
