A 30 year old man from the Polson area was airlifted on Sunday morning with life-threatening injuries after a single vehicle collision.
According to Montana Highway Patrol Trooper David Mills, the crash was called in shortly after 6 a.m. near mile marker 4 on Lake Mary Ronan Highway.
Mills says that initial reports indicate the man was driving west when he failed to negotiate a curve and over-corrected, rolling his vehicle through a fence and over a stock tank.
The man was not wearing a seatbelt and was thrown as the vehicle rolled.
While the crash wasn't discovered until about 6 a.m., it's believed to have occurred sometime before 2 a.m.
The driver was taken to Kalispell Regional Medical Center.
According to Trooper Mills, the crash is still being investigated, but says that alcohol may have been a factor.
The man's name has not been released.
