2 killed in Big Horn County crash

Posted: Updated:

BILLINGS - A fatal crash in Big Horn County claimed two lives Monday night. 

Montana Highway Patrol Trooper Justin Moran said an SUV carrying six people drifted off the road on U.S. Highway 212 between Busby and Lame Deer around 11 p.m. Monday. 

The driver lost control, struck a culvert and rolled. Three people were ejected and two of them have died from their injuries.  Shortly after the crash occurred, a second vehicle driving through the crash site ran over one of the ejected passengers.

The Montana Highway Patrol and Bureau of Indian Affairs are working together to determine which incident lead to the fatality. The other passengers involved in the crash were also taken to the hospital for medical attention. The extent of their injuries are unknown.

Moran believes lack of seat belt use was a factor, but there were no signs of speeding or alcohol use.
