HAMILTON, Mont. (AP) - A 74-year-old Darby-area man drowned in the Bitterroot River after the boat he and two others were in struck a submerged log, throwing all three men into the river.

Ravalli County Undersheriff Steve Holton says the men were fishing early Wednesday afternoon when the accident happened between the Tucker and Victor crossings.

Two men were able to get back into the boat, but the victim was washed downstream.

Search and rescue crews and volunteer firefighters recovered the man’s body.

The victim’s name hasn’t been released.
