A 57-year-old Billings man was killed in a rollover accident on Interstate 90 in Jefferson County Sunday afternoon.
The Montana Highway Patrol reports the victim lost control of his Jeep Cherokee when a rear tire “failed” while traveling east on the interstate west of Cardwell just before 3 p.m. The Jeep went across the median and overturned into the westbound lane. The passenger in the Jeep, a 72-year-old man also from Billings, was injured in the crash.
Both men were wearing seatbelts at the time of the accident.
The highway patrol has not released the names of the victims.
