The Cadillac was driving westbound on Highway 212 at a high rate of speed, the MPH said, with a Lame Deer BIA police vehicle in pursuit. The driver lost control of the car around a left-hand curve, ran off the right side of the road, and the vehicle overturned.

Two of the people not wearing seat belts were thrown from the car. The road was dry at the time of the crash, the MHP said, and speed and alcohol were both suspected as factors.
