BILLINGS - The man killed in a collision Thursday night on Interstate 90 near Lockwood has been identified as John Patrick King, 40 of Billings.

Yellowstone County deputy coroner Cliff Mahoney said the cause of death was blunt force injury from the crash and ejection from the vehicle. 

King was merging onto westbound I-90 from the Lockwood exit in a pickup when he slid into a semi and trailer, then bounced into a guardrail. He was thrown from the vehicle and died at the scene. 

King did not appear to be wearing a seat belt, Mahoney said.

No one else was seriously injured. Authorities do not think charges will be filed in the incident.
