According to the Helena Independent Record, a Montana woman was found dead early Tuesday morning after a rollover car accident approximately 20 miles south of Havre. The car accident occurred around 1:30 a.m. near the intersection of Beaver Creek Road and Mooney Coulee Road, according to Montana Highway Patrol Trooper Lewis Johnson.
There were four people inside a northbound vehicle on Beaver Creek Road when it failed to negotiate a left curve, went off the road, hit a tree and rolled before coming to a stop on its driver's side. Johnson estimated the car came to a stop about 100 yards from where it left the road.
One woman occupant of the car that crashed was pronounced dead on the scene. Another woman and a man who were in the car that crashed in the accident were taken to an area hospital.
The investigation into the car accident is ongoing, and Montana Trooper Johnson said it remained to be determined where the woman who died in the car accident had been situated in the car before the crash. No one was wearing a seat belt and the vehicle was found rolled onto its driver's side, Montana Trooper Johnson said.
Responders were alerted to the car accident in Beaver Creek Park after someone in the vehicle was able to find people at a nearby campsite. One of the campers then traveled to a point where they had cellphone service and called 911, Montana Trooper Johnson said.
