BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) -- Officials in northeastern Montana have identified a 27-year-old Morehead, Kentucky, woman who died in a weekend rollover crash near Fort Peck.

Montana Highway Patrol Trooper Glenn Quinnell tells The Billings Gazette that Samantha J. Conn died just after 8:30 a.m. Saturday when she was thrown from a minivan as it rolled.

The patrol says Conn's sister was northbound on Secondary Highway 24 when she became distracted by deer on the side of the road.

The minivan drifted off the road. The driver over corrected, and the van went across both lanes of traffic and ended up in the ditch, where it rolled.

Conn's 29-year-old sister, who is from St. Marie, was taken to a Glasgow hospital for treatment of her injuries.
