VIRGINIA CITY, Mont. -

Madison County officials have released the name of a 28-year-old man who was killed in a rollover crash on U.S. Highway 287 just south of Norris.

Sheriff Dave Schenk tells the Bozeman Daily Chronicle that Garnet P. Ragone of McAllister died in the crash at about 1:30 a.m. Thursday.

The Montana Highway Patrol says Ragone was northbound when his pickup truck drifted off the road. He overcorrected twice and the pickup rolled. Ragone was ejected.

The patrol initially said the victim was from Belgrade based on the address on his driver's license, but Schenk said Ragone had lived in McAlister for some time.
