BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - Big Horn County officials have released the name of a 12-year-old girl who died after falling out of a moving pickup truck on the Crow Indian Reservation.

Coroner Terry Bullis tells The Billings Gazette (https://bit.ly/2cmly9W ) that Courtney Little Nest of Hardin died Saturday afternoon.

The Montana Highway Patrol says Little Nest was sitting on a tool box in the back of the truck when the 37-year-old woman driving the pickup swerved for unknown reasons. Little Nest fell over the side of the pickup. Bullis says she died at the scene.

Another 12-year-old girl and four children under the age of 10 also were riding in the back of the pickup truck.

The Bureau of Indian Affairs is investigating the crash, with the patrol’s assistance.
