An accident involving two vehicles killed a Sun River man late Sunday morning. Montana Highway Patrol said the vehicles involved were traveling along I-15 between Great Falls and Vaughn, Montana near mile marker 284 when the accident occurred.
Authorities believe the accident transpired after a Nissan Xterra rear-ended a GMC Sonoma which was moving far slower. The impact sent the Sonoma off the road before it rolled over. The driver of the rolled over Sonoma was partially ejected through the window.
The deceased man, identified as Norman Harris, 81, was reported to not have been wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident. Harris was declared dead at the scene of the accident.
The Xterra’s driver is reported to be uninjured by the accident.
