BILLINGS -

The Big Horn County Coroner's office releases the names of the three men who died in a car wreck Tuesday in Big Horn County. They are 46-year old Gerald Red Wolf and his brother 36-year old Stephen Red Wolf, both of Crow Agency, and their cousin 36-year old Thomas Red Wolf, Jr. of Wyola.

Montana Highway Patrol Troopers say it happened on Highway 313 outside of St. Xavier. Troopers say the 46-year-old driver didn't turn at a curve and instead went straight and then down an embankment. The car hit water and flipped onto its top. The driver and two passengers, both 36-years old, were dead when law enforcement arrived on the scene. Troopers say a farmer was the one who spotted the vehicle in the water. They say alcohol was involved in the crash but speed was not. No one was wearing a seatbelt. Troopers say they're not exactly sure what time the accident happened.
