A 33-year-old man from South Jersey was killed and his 29-year-old passenger seriously hurt Saturday in Montana when their SUV struck trees and rolled down a rocky embankment, authorities said.

Benjamin Clayton of Galloway was traveling on a rugged dirt road when he lost control of his vehicle on a curve, struck several trees and rolled down a 300-foot embankment, a spokesman for the Montana Highway Patrol said.

Clayton's female passenger, who was not identified,  was able to crawl out of the SUV and call 9-1-1, authorities said.

The area near Hungry Horse, Montana, is very scenic, rustic and popular with fishermen and hikers.

The crash remains under investigation.
