A Bigfork woman has been identified as the victim of a fatal rollover Tuesday on Montana Highway 83 in the Swan River valley east of Bigfork.

Lake County Sheriff Don Bell said Sharon Wyman, 53, was killed when her vehicle rolled near mile marker 82. The crash was called in to dispatch at 12:11 p.m.

According to the Montana Highway Patrol, Wyman was alone and southbound in a GMC Envoy just south of Ferndale and the Flathead-Lake county line.

The Envoy drifted off the right side of the roadway, overcorrected to the left, then overcorrected back to the right. It rolled three times on the highway, then rolled off the right side of the road, coming to rest on its roof.

Wyman was ejected and died at the scene.

Investigation into the cause of the crash is ongoing, but alcohol, drugs or speed are not suspected, a MHP spokeswoman said. It was unknown if Wyman was wearing a seat belt.

It was the 59th fatality on Montana highways this year, compared to 67 at this time last year and 60 in 2015.
