A motor vehicle crash this weekend left a Box Elder man dead.
The 23-year-old driver, Shawn Saddler, was driving on Lower Box Elder Road around 8:30 p. m. Friday night when he entered a left turn too fast for the current road conditions, according to a Montana Highway Patrol dispatcher.
The Chevy Blazer went off the road and rolled through the ditch, coming to rest on its top.
When emergency responders reached the scene, he was already dead.
Saddler was not wearing his seat belt.
According to an obituary from Holland & Bonine Funeral Home running in today’s Havre Daily News, a wake will be held at 1 p. m. today, and funeral services will be held at 10 a. m. Tuesday, with Russell Standing Rock and Kenneth Writing Bird officiating.
All services will be at Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church in Rocky Boy, and Saddler will be buried on the Duran family property.
