Witnesses say the driver of the pickup truck was ejected from the vehicle and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Montana Highway Patrol trooper Terry Rosenbaum says both vehicles burst into flames after impact. The driver of the semi and his passenger were unhurt, but were checked out at St. Luke’s Hospital in Ronan and released.Rosenbaum says traffic was backed up for three to four miles in both directions. He says traffic did not resume until the fire was extinguished and the wreckage was cleared at about 9 a m.
