The patrol says the car was westbound at about 4 a.m. Sunday when it went off the road and into the ditch. The car struck a metal light pole, breaking it at the base, and then struck an embankment.
Shayla Marie Dunlap was thrown from the vehicle and died at the scene. David Ampudia died of his injuries at Kalispell Regional Medical Center.
