PARK CITY, Mont. — Officials in south-central Montana have released the name of a 39-year-old woman who died in a rollover crash on Interstate 90 near Park City.

The Montana Highway Patrol says a 39-year-old man driving the SUV overcorrected when it drifted off the road, causing it to roll.

Nuystul says the driver and three girls, ages 11, 15, and 16, were injured. The girls were ejected from the vehicle. All four were hospitalized and Nystrom says two remained in “very critical” condition on Monday morning.

The man’s most recent address was Crosby, North Dakota. One of the teenage girls was from Columbus while the other was from Crosby. Officials had not yet determined the hometown of the 11-year-old.
