BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - Montana Highway Patrol authorities say a 22-year-old Superior woman died in a crash near Glendive, but a 5-month old infant survived.

Patrol officials say the rollover accident happened Saturday on Interstate 94. The Billings Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/1FXKFFZ ) the Leandra Baldwin overcorrected after driving off the road, and her car rolled into the median and across the eastbound lanes.

The woman was not wearing a seat belt and was thrown from the car.

Trooper Aariad Ream says Wibaux County Sheriff Shane Harrington removed the infant from a car seat in the vehicle. The child was uninjured.

Baldwin was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Authorities say speed was a factor in the crash.
