Authorities are reporting a teenage girl died in a single car accident in Butte on Thursday.
The Butte car accident occurred outside of highway 2 near the top of Pipestone Pass.
“The vehicle was traveling at what I believe to be a fairly high rate of speed for that road,” Klapan said. The driver was not wearing a seatbelt.
The Butte teen was driving westbound on the road when the vehicle crossed the eastbound lane and went off the left side of the road, causing the vehicle to become airborne. The vehicle rotated three-quarter times, landed no its front and overturned, coming to a stop on its roof. The vehicle burst into flames upon impact, according to MHP.
Speed was a factor. It is unknown if alcohol was involved. More information is available here.
