HARDIN, Mont. (AP) - A 12-year-old girl riding in the back of a pickup truck on the Crow Reservation died when she fell off a tool box and hit her head.

The Montana State Patrol says the accident happened on Saturday when the truck driver swerved for unknown reasons.

The Billings Gazette reports (https://tinyurl.com/ztcljgo ) the girl had been sitting next to another girl on a toolbox, and four children were in the cab of the truck.

Authorities say the 37-year-old driver and other children were not injured. They have not been identified.

Tribal members and the Bureau of Indian Affairs are in charge of the investigation.
