BOZEMAN – Two people are dead after a head-on crash involving two pickup trucks on Bridger Canyon Drive in Bozeman Saturday night.

Montana Highway Patrol Trooper Tyler Brant says the accident happened at around 7:55 p.m. Saturday at mile marker 15, near Flaming Arrow Road.

There were no passengers in either truck.

The woman in the northbound truck was wearing her seatbelt; the man driving the white truck was not wearing a seatbelt. Both were pronounced dead at the scene,
