Robert Taylor, a 39-year-old Colorado Springs man, died Thursday morning in southeastern Montana after the pickup truck he was in drove off the roadway and rolled, the Montana Highway Patrol said.

Powder River County coroner Russ Kinzer confirmed that Taylor died after the crash that also sent a 33-year-old Colorado Springs man to a local hospital. The condition and identity of the injured man had not been released by noon on Friday. A spokeswoman for the Highway Patrol said it was unclear which man was driving during the wreck that happened about 9:20 a.m. on Montana Highway 59 southeast of Broadus.

According to the report, the vehicle drifted off the road. When the driver tried to correct the path, he lost control and vehicle tumbled to its resting place alongside the highway.
