GREAT FALLS, Mont. -

Officials in Chouteau County have released the name of a 5-year-old Oregon girl who died of injuries suffered in a one-vehicle rollover in north-central Montana.
    
The Great Falls Tribune reports Lorelai Fields of Veronia, Ore., died at a Great Falls hospital of injuries suffered in a crash on U.S. Highway 87 about two miles south of Big Sandy.
    
Fields was one of five occupants of a sport utility vehicle that went off the road at about 1:30 p.m. Monday.
    
The Montana Highway Patrol says a 7-year-old girl was flown to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, where she remained in critical condition on Tuesday.
    
The 26-year-old woman driving the SUV, a 17-year-old girl and a 4-year-old girl were taken to a Great Falls hospital for treatment.
    
The initial investigation found the driver may have fallen asleep.
