The next day a couple died after losing control of their vehicle and hitting a stone wall. The crash occurred near Plains, Montana and both of the deceased were in their 30’s. Hours later near Stevensville, a middle-aged man died after his motorcycle crashed.

Then on Sunday morning, a man in his 40’s from Idaho died in a motorcycle crash near the border with Idaho.
