A Friday rollover accident on Interstate 90 sent one teen to the hospital, according to Montana Highway Patrol.
Tim Wyckoff said a car carrying three teenagers was traveling eastbound on I-90 near the Fairmount exit just before 2 p.m. when the driver of the car, a 17-year-old male, lost control of the vehicle and drifted into the median. The driver twice overcorrected the vehicle, Wyckoff said, causing the vehicle to roll two times until landing on its wheels.
The driver and a 17-year-old female in the passenger seat were not injured beyond minor injuries, Wyckoff said, but a 16-year-old backseat passenger sustained a cut along the underside of his forearm.

The 16-year-old, who was not wearing his seatbelt, was transported to Community Hospital of Anaconda for medical treatment, the trooper said.
Neither speed nor drugs or alcohol were a factor in the accident, Wyckoff said.
