The Montana Highway Patrol says Welle was driving a larger, four-wheel all-terrain vehicle and apparently pulled in front of the logging truck while trying to make a U-turn.

The truck driver tried to avoid the collision, causing the truck to roll onto its side and spill its load. The truck driver was not seriously injured.
