Wolf Creek Woman Killed in Head-On Crash; 5 Injured

A crash involving two vehicles took the life of a Wolf Creek woman late Sunday afternoon. Excessive speed is believed to be the cause of the crash.

Montana Highway Patrol said the woman, later identified as Matilda Wipf, 44, was a passenger in a Chevy Silverado when it collided with a Ford F-150 attempting to pass another vehicle traveling north on Highway 87. The Ford F-150 is reported to have been driven by a 23-year old woman from Box Elder. Both vehicles flipped over as a result of the crash. In total, five people were injured in the crash.

According to Montana Highway Patrol, everyone who was injured was rushed to the Benefis Health System. One of the victims was taken by a Mercy Flight helicopter to a Benefis location in Great Falls. Matilda Wipf, the woman who died, was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected out of the window of the Silverado.

Montana Highway Patrol is currently investigating the crash. Drugs or alcohol is not believed to have been a contributing factor in the crash.
