WOLF CREEK - A Billings man traveling to Wolf Creek is okay after swerving to miss multiple deer and rolling his car and boat into a ditch along Craig Frontage Road Sunday morning, according to the Montana Highway Patrol Trooper Amanda Glueckert.
The trooper reports that the man was likely going about 50 mph, which is the speed limit, when he swerved to miss several deer in the road.
The vehicle didn't roll completely over, but landed on the driver's side.
Glueckert said that the truck and trailer were totalled, but the boat appeared to be okay.
The accident happened around 5:30 a.m., but the driver lost his cell phone in the crash and it was an hour before he located it and was able to call for help.
