BUTTE, Mont. (AP) -- Authorities say a in southwest Montana's Gravelly Mountains.

The Montana Highway Patrol says five hunters from Butte arrived at a campground near the Ruby River at about 10 p.m. Tuesday. Trooper Marcus Cook told the Bozeman Daily Chronicle that four of them got out of the SUV and three walked toward the tent, but the victim went behind the vehicle. The driver didn't see the victim as he backed the SUV up to park it.

Madison County Undersheriff Roger Thompson tells KXLF-TV that John Rohan died at the scene. The hunting group called authorities from a nearby ranch.
