An accident in Crow Reservation left one woman dead Tuesday and another person injured. The accident occurred in the early morning hours, just after 5 a.m., near Wyola, Montana.
Montana Highway Patrol said the accident happened after a Ford truck did not yield to a logging truck and was hit. Montana Highway Patrol Trooper Calvin Jimmerson said the Ford truck was pulling onto Secondary Highway 451 from Little Big Horn Road when it did not allow the logging truck to pass.
The woman killed in the accident was later identified as Jacinta Walks, 52, of Lodge Grass, Montana. Montana Highway Patrol said she was a passenger in the Ford Truck at the time of the accident. Terry Bullis, the Big Horn County Coroner, confirmed that Walks’ husband, who was driving the Ford truck, was transported to a local area hospital to treat his injuries.
The accident took place near the 29 mile marker on Montana Highway 451.
Montana Highway Patrol is currently investigating the cause of the accident.
