HELENA, Montana — A 48-year-old man has died in a single-vehicle rollover crash near Belt.

Lt. Bob Rosipal with the Cascade County coroner's office said the victim was Joe Bramlette of Loma.

The Montana Highway Patrol reports Bramlette was westbound on U.S. Highway 87 at about 1 a.m. Monday when he failed to negotiate a right hand turn.

His sport utility vehicle crossed the center line and the fog line on the left hand shoulder. Bramlette overcorrected to the right and to the left, sending the SUV into a broadside skid. It then rolled about three times, coming to rest on its wheels in the ditch.

Bramlette was ejected from the SUV and died at the scene.
