Sheriff IDs victim of Musselshell River crash

Posted: Updated:

BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - Officials in Musselshell County have identified the man who died when the sport utility vehicle he was riding in went off a bridge and into the Musselshell River east of Roundup.

Sheriff Woodrow Weitzel says 32-year-old Jesse Lee Adolph of Roundup died in the crash early on July 10.

The Montana Highway Patrol says Adolph and two other men were northbound when the driver of the SUV failed to negotiate a sharp turn in Parrot Creek Road.

The 21-year-old driver and a 24-year-old passenger were able to get out of the vehicle, but Adolph was unable to free himself.

Two deputies arrived shortly after the crash and pulled Adolph from the SUV, but were unable to resuscitate him.
