Q2 reports that one man is dead following a two-vehicle collision on Interstate 90 near the Lockwood exit on Thursday night. Montana Highway Patrol said a Ford pickup truck was merging onto the interstate shortly after 5 p.m. when it spun into the path of a semi truck and trailer. The semi struck the pickup which hit a guardrail, ejecting the driver, who died at the scene. The two people in the semi were not injured. Icy roads were reportedly a factor.

A Missoula County Sheriff’s Deputy was injured when his patrol car was hit as he was responding to a crash on I-90. Sgt. Schmill was on the shoulder of the highway when he was rear-ended by a car. He and the driver of the other car were taken to St. Patrick Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
