(TROY)- Montana Highway Patrol troopers are trying to determine whether a Troy man killed over the weekend ran off the road while swerving to avoid an animal.
29-year old Billy Don Norman died Sunday evening when his Dodge Calibur ran off Highway 56, going off the opposite side of the Bull Lake Road into the ditch and rolling over several times. Troopers say Norman wasn't wearing his seat belt and was thrown from the car, dying at the scene.
Troopers say the crash scene appears as if Norman may have swerved to miss an animal or other obstruction in the road. The road was bare and dry, but there was an extensive skidmark on the highway.
MHP will be running a check to see if alcohol was a factor, but troopers say that's routine procedure in an accident like this.
