Fatal Accident Between Bonner and East Missoula [AUDIO]
A 31 year-old Milltown woman was killed Tuesday afternoon after being ejected from her SUV when it went out of control and rolled on Interstate 90 between East Missoula and Bonner. She has been identified as Miranda House.
Montana Highway Patrol Trooper Sean Finley says House was alone in the vehicle when she attempted to pass another car, lost control and rolled. Not wearing a seat belt, she was ejected from the vehicle and was pronounced dead at the scene. Finley says the investigation into the fatality is underway, and it is not known at this time if alcohol was involved. This is the second fatal rollover crash on I-90 in the past three days. 22 year-old Derek Nelson was killed after the truck in which he was a passenger rolled Sunday night between Missoula and Frenchtown. Neither Nelson nor the driver 21 year-old Marcus Sickles were wearing seat belts.
