Rollover Driver Cited

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

The Montana Highway Patrol has ticketed the driver of the car that rolled on Shannon Road early Monday morning.

MHP Trooper Darvin Mees says the driver, 19-year-old Nathan Long, has been cited for "failing to drive in a careful and prudent manner." Mees says Long was distracted and driving faster than the advised speed limit on the curve. He lost control and the car rolled more than once and landed on its side.

Trooper Mees says the rear tires had no tread and were a factor in the rollover. Long and his 20-year-old passenger, Tyffani Potter, were transported to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries.
