The Cascade County Sheriff has identified Jacob Romanchuck of Sand Coulee as the teenager who died last night after falling out of the bed of a moving pickup truck.
Romanchuck, 14, was an 8th-grader at Centerville school.
Troopers with the Montana Highway Patrol say the accident happened shortly before 10 p.m. on Thursday on Fields Road just southeast of Great Falls.
Romanchuk was airlifted to Benefis hospital by Mercy Flight, but did not survive.
Two others were in the vehicle, but neither was injured.
Troopers do not yet know how he fell out, but do not believe that alcohol was a factor in the accident.
Officials are continuing to investigate the incident.
