FORT PECK – A 27-year-old Kentucky woman died after being ejected from a vehicle that rolled after the driver became distracted by deer on the side of the road.

The Montana Highway Patrol says the woman from Morehead, Kentucky, wasn’t wearing a seatbelt during the crash that occurred about 9 p.m. Saturday near Fort Peck.

MHP says the woman was riding in a minivan being driven by a St. Marie woman on Highway 24 when the vehicle drifted off the shoulder.

MHP says the driver overcorrected and the vehicle crossed both lanes and rolled when it hit the opposite ditch.

The woman from Kentucky was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver, who was wearing a seatbelt, was hospitalized in Glasgow.

Names haven’t been released.
