Two young girls were killed after in a tragic crash Monday night near Lame Deer. A report released by the Montana Highway Patrol suspects alcohol might be to blame for the crash. Seven others were injured in the crash.
Montana Highway Patrol said the crash occurred shortly before 11 p.m. near the 30-mile marker of Highway 212. The vehicle responsible for the crash, a GMC Yukon, is reported to have veered off the road and hit a culvert before rolling over. Three of the six passengers were ejected from the Yukon. None of the passengers are reported to have been wearing seat belts at the time of the crash.
Shortly after the Yukon turned over, a Dodge Stratus driving west on Highway 212 struck one of the passengers who was ejected. The girls who did not survive the crash are reported to have been 6 and 12 years old. The survivors were transported to a hospital in Lame Deer. The extent of their injuries are unknown at this time.
The identities of the deceased will be released as soon as police notify family members.
