BILLINGS - One man died Thursday after a two-vehicle collision on Interstate 90 near the Lockwood exit.

Montana Highway Patrol Trooper Justin Moran says a Ford pickup truck was merging onto the interstate shortly after 5 p.m. at the MetraPark exit when it spun into the path of a semi-truck and trailer.

The semi struck the pickup and it hit a guardrail, ejecting the driver, who died at the scene, Moran said. Two people were in the semi and were not injured, he said.

Moran said the icy roads were a factor. The investigation is ongoing, and Moran said he does not believe alcohol was a factor or that charges would be filed against the semi driver.
