Emergency crews were dispatched just after noon on Tuesday to a rollover on Eden Road south of Great Falls.
One person is trapped underneath the truck, but is conscious and communicating with emergency personnel.
Witnesses tell us that the large truck could not stop coming down-hill, and rolled.
Several agencies have responded to the scene, including Mercy Flight, Sand Coulee fire, Great Falls Emergency Services, Montana Highway Patrol, and Malmstrom Air Force Base.
MTN Reporter DaVonte McKenith is at the scene; we will update you as we get more details.

Once the man is freed from under the truck, he will be airlifted via Mercy Flight.
The extent of the man's injuries has not been disclosed; the man is believed to be in his mid-30s.
MHP trooper says that the truck lost its brakes, hit a road grader, and rolled into an embankment.
