A 19-year-old man died in a one-vehicle crash in southwestern Montana over the weekend.
The Montana Highway Patrol says the man from Taylors, South Carolina, was eastbound on Montana Highway 200 northwest of Missoula at about 3:45 a.m. Sunday when his car crossed the center line, went off the road and hit a guardrail. The car slid along the rail for about 50 feet before spinning and coming to rest in a ditch.
The Missoula County sheriff's office says that James Christopher Clingan was the only person in the car. He died at the scene.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
