Montana Highway Patrol reports that an 80-year-old woman from Kalispell was driving her 2001 Mercedes Benz westbound across Sportsman’s Bridge when she crossed the center line and collided with a 2015 Nissan Rogue.

According to MHP, the driver of the Nissan Rogue was a 22-year-old female from Missoula. She was traveling with a 23-year-old passenger also from Missoula. The driver was taken to Kalispell Regional Medical Center for injuries.
