SHEPHERD -

Yellowstone County Coroner identifies the man who died Thursday after his car crashed into the Yellowstone River.

Coroner Bill Jones says the 40-year-old man is Daven Botsch from Shepherd. Assistant Coroner Chad Fehr says Botsch took his own life and drowned in the river. Lt. Shane Skillen with the Yellowstone County Sheriff's Office says the black pick-up drove off of the ramp right before the Huntley Bridge on Old Highway 312. Law enforcement officers say the car flew off of the embankment and flipped, dropping about 50 feet into the river.

Lt. Skillen believes speed was a factor in the accident.

    The Tim McGraw concert at MetraPark is one of the Magic City's biggest events of the year, with more than 8,700 tickets sold. But according to MetraPark's sales and marketing director, the concert might not have been possible without another big event in Metra history - the Father's Day Tornado. Some shows like this would have had too much gear, such as heavy stacks of speakers, for the arena a few years ago."The Father's Day Tornado tore the roof off the place, but it gave us an opportunity ...
