  • 0

Beaverhead County Coroner Julie Briggs identified the man who died Thursday in a rollover crash south of Wise River as Samuel Sampson, 46, of Wise River.

Beaverhead County deputies responded to a call at 10:51 p.m. Thursday and found Sampson dead inside a pickup truck. 

Montana Highway Patrol Trooper Joe Fowler said Tuesday that Sampson was traveling southbound on the Pioneer Mountains Scenic Byway about 1.5 miles south of Wise River when he attempted to negotiate a right curve and ended up perpendicular.

Fowler said alcohol was a factor in the crash and Sampson wasn't wearing a seat belt.
