Rollover in Laurel

Posted: Updated:
LAUREL -

There was a rollover accident in Laurel around 4:40 PM Thursday.

Montana Highway Patrol Trooper, Toman Baukema, said it involved a 2001 Ford Pickup driven by 52-year-old, Jeffrey Pedlund.

Baukema said that Pedlund was driving Westbound on Highway 10 and Snowline Vista when Pedlund did not navigate the curb and rolled his car into a field.

Montana Highway Patrol said that this was a one-vehicle accident involving one person in the car.

Baukema said that alcohol is believed to be a factor, and Pedlund was cited for a DUI.

Laurel Fire Chief, Brent Peters, says cars can be replaced, but people can't. In order to get to Pedlund out, officers had to cut his car door open with pliers.

"We determined it was easier to cut off the passenger, and driver side doors to gain access to him," said Peters.

Baukema said Pedlund was transported to the Billings Clinic, and there were non-life threatening injuries.
