One Killed, Five Injured in Crash South of Bridger
HELENA, Mont. (AP) — The Montana Highway Patrol says a car turned in front of another car at an intersection south of Bridger, killing one person and seriously injuring five others.
The patrol says a Ford Taurus turned left off Montana Highway 310 about three miles south of Bridger Sunday afternoon and was struck on the passenger side by a northbound Pontiac Grand Am.
Carbon County Undersheriff Dan McJunkin tells The Billings Gazette that 85-year-old Norma Hick of Bridger died at the scene, while the 73-year-old Bridger man who was driving the Taurus was hospitalized in Billings.
A 35-year-old Wyoming man, a 37-year-old woman and two girls, ages 14 and 17, also were taken to a Billings hospital.
The names of the injured haven’t been released.
