I-90 Fatality Victim Identified
The name of the Missoula man who died in the I-90 rollover crash on the evening on July 1, 2012 hes been released. Derek Ross Nelson, age 22, was pronounced dead at the crash scene by a Missoula County Deputy Coroner. The driver of the vehicle, Marcus Sickles, age 21, was thrown from the vehicle and transported to St. Patrick’s hospital for treatment. His current condition is not known.
The black Chevy truck involved was linked to a criminal mischief case (tipped over porta-potty) that took place in Frenchtown just prior to the crash. The truck and its occupants were identified and linked to the criminal mischief case by witness descriptions of the two men and the truck which displayed a “Metal Militia” sticker in the windshield.
It is expected that Marcus Sickles will be charged by the county for Criminal Mischief, but any additional charges resulting from the crash will be filed by the Montana Highway Patrol.
