GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) - The Montana Highway Patrol says drugs were found at the scene of a central Montana rollover crash that killed three teens and injured a fourth.

Trooper Joe DeJong told the Great Falls Tribune (https://gftrib.com/1Ln71oh ) that speed also was a factor in the crash early Wednesday on U.S. Highway 87 between Windham and Moccasin.

Judith Basin County Deputy Coroner Dick Brown said two 14-year-old girls from Roundup - Krissy Oset and Cora Meckel - died at the scene, while 16-year-old Brandon Jordon of Billings died in the hours after the crash. DeJong says Jordon was driving.

DeJong says a 15-year-old boy from Geyser remained hospitalized Thursday with a severe back injury. His name has not been released.

The patrol says the SUV went off the road, hit an approach and rolled several times. All four occupants were ejected.
