BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — A semitrailer hauling a load of coal collided with a car in southeastern Montana, injuring three people and spilling 38 tons of coal on U.S. Highway 314 near Decker.

The Montana Highway Patrol says the semi tipped over in the collision just before 6 p.m. Wednesday.

Trooper Ben Panas tells The Associated Press reports the three people in the car were taken to a hospital in Sheridan, Wyo., with injuries that did not appear to be life-threatening. The driver of the semi drove himself to the hospital.

The Montana Department of Transportation reported the highway was partially blocked by the coal spill and traffic was slowed as crews cleaned it up.

The crash remains under investigation.
