One person is dead after a single-vehicle crash in Sanders County Saturday evening.

The Montana Highway Patrol was called to the scene around 7:40 p.m.

A 46-year-old woman was traveling eastbound on Little Bitterroot Road with a passenger, a 39-year-old woman.

The driver attempted to turn left on a curve, failed to maintain control of the vehicle, and rolled off the right side of the roadway.

Neither occupant was wearing a seatbelt. MHP reports that the woman driving died and the passenger survived.

Alcohol and speed are suspected factors in the crash.
