DODSON, Mont. (NMB) – A Dodson man was killed early Tuesday morning in a single vehicle rollover wreck in Phillips County. The Phillip’s County Sheriff’s Office says that 21-year-old Caleb Arthur Ditmar was killed in the crash.
The Montana Highway Patrol says the wreck happened at about 5 AM Tuesday a few miles west of Dodson. Ditmar was traveling east on US Highway 2. He was negotiating a left-hand curve when it is believed the driver fell asleep and the vehicle drifted off the roadway. Ditmar awoke and overcorrected. The wheels dug into the soft dirt, causing it to roll several times before coming to rest in a field. Ditmar was ejected from the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene.
Ditmar was not wearing a seatbelt and the roads were bare and dry at the time.
