By Beacon Staff

BILLINGS — Officials in Big Horn County have released the name of a 5-year-old Polson boy who died after a rollover crash on Interstate 90 between Billings and Hardin.

Coroner Terry Bullis says Bradley Trogdent was killed in the crash Saturday morning.

Montana Highway Patrol Trooper Jason Hoppert tells The Billings Gazette a 4-year-old was flown to a Denver hospital with life-threatening injuries while a 27-year-old Polson woman was hospitalized in intensive care in Billings Sunday afternoon.

Hoppert says it appears the woman fell asleep while driving. The sport utility vehicle drifted into the median, the woman overcorrected and lost control before the SUV rolled several times. All three were thrown from the SUV as it rolled.
