Rollover in Laurel

Posted: Updated:

The Montana Highway Patrol is investigating a rollover, which happened in Laurel early Monday morning.

MHP Trooper Darvin Mees says the car was traveling west on Shannon Road. The driver, a 19-year-old male, reportedly lost control of the car while traveling on a curve. The car rolled more than once and landed on its side.

The driver and the 20-year-old female passenger were transported to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries. Troopers say the male was reportedly wearing a seat belt, but the female was not because of a pre-existing condition.

The cause of the accident remains under investigation. The condition of the tires and speed may have been factors.
