The Montana Highway Patrol says one person died and two others were injured Sunday afternoon near Bonner after a passenger car traveling east crossed the median on Interstate 90 and collided with oncoming traffic.

Police say the driver of the car died at the scene after the vehicle hit a passenger van carrying a family with several children. The family in the van sustained minor injuries.

Trooper Richard Salois says that a couple from British Columbia in a truck pulling a camper and following the van swerved to avoid the collision and ended up in the ditch.

Police say the couple was taken to a hospital where they were treated and released.
