LAUREL, Mont. (AP) - Yellowstone County officials have released the name of a 47-year-old man who died when his sport utility vehicle struck a tree in Laurel.

Coroner Lt. Bill Jones tells The Billings Gazette (https://bit.ly/1rutW7b ) that David E. Plattner of Billings died in the crash at about 7 p.m. Monday.

Investigators are still trying to determine what caused Plattner to veer off the road. Jones says an autopsy did not uncover any medical reasons. It could be up to two months before toxicology results are available.
