Rollover Wreck in Laurel Tuesday
A woman was hospitalized after her vehicle rolled off the interstate near Laurel on Tuesday night. Authorities said it appears she was driving too fast to negotiate the turn on the exit ramp. The Montana Highway Patrol tells the Billings Gazette that shortly before 7 p.m., MHP Sgt. Eric Gilbert recorded the SUV speed reading of approximately 95 miles per hour while traveling eastbound on Interstate 90.
He soon lost sight of the vehicle, before reaching the east Laurel exit near mile marker 434, according to MHP spokesman Trooper Justin Moran. Gilbert observed the overturned SUV on the hillside next to the exit. The unidentified woman inside, believed to be in her early 20s, was unable to exit the vehicle. Laurel Volunteer Fire Department responders were able to get the woman out through the rear of the vehicle.
