POLSON — Authorities have released the name of the Missoula man who died in an early Wednesday morning accident near Arlee.

Lake County Sheriff Don Bell reports that Michael Singer, 63, of Missoula died in a head-on crash that happened on US Highway 93 North at mile marker 20.5 in Lake County.

The Montana Highway Patrol previously told MTN News that a pick-up truck was traveling north on US Highway 93 just after 2:30 a.m., when the driver drifted to the left and crossed the center line into oncoming traffic.

The pick-up truck struck head-on with a Chevy pick-up truck driven by the Missoula man -- later identified as Singer -- who was traveling southbound, killing him.

The other driver was taken to St. Patrick Hospital in Missoula with unknown injuries.

The Montana Highway Patrol is investigating the crash, which resulted in Singer’s death.
