FROMBERG – The Montana Highway Patrol reports two people died Thursday morning in a head-on collision on Highway 310 near Fromberg.
Trooper Brandon Timm said the crash occurred just before 8 a.m. Timm said a Dodge pickup was traveling northbound and drifted across the center and encroached into the southbound lane.
The driver then struck a Ford pickup truck going the opposite direction. Both drivers died at the scene and a child passenger in the Dodge was taken to the hospital with a broken leg.
The road will be closed for about an hour, according to Timm. The Montana Highway Patrol plans to fly a drone over the scene to aid in the investigation.
