LIMA, Mont. (AP) -- The Montana Highway Patrol says a 63-year-old Utah man was killed in a single-vehicle rollover on Interstate 15 in southwestern Montana.

The patrol says Murlin Ralph of Payson, Utah was northbound near Lima early Sunday when his vehicle drifted into the median, drove on the southbound lanes for a bit then back into the median, where the vehicle rolled. Ralph was not wearing a seat belt and was thrown from the vehicle, causing fatal injuries.

KECI-TV reports the patrol believes Ralph fell asleep while driving.
