Montana highway wreckage: 5 dead after storm

HARDIN, Mont. –

Authorities say at least five people have died following a crash Friday night on Interstate 90 in Montana.

At least 20 vehicles crashed and Montana Highway Patrol Sgt. Jay Nelson said authorities believe weather is the cause.

“It looks like there’s high winds, causing a dust storm with zero visibility,” he said.

While the highway patrol didn’t immediately count the number of injured, Nelson said Billings had to call in an ambulance to help.

Governor Greg Gianforte said on Twitter: “I am deeply saddened by the news of a mass casualty crash near Hardin. Please join me in praying to lift the victims and their loved ones. We are grateful to first responders for their service.”

The incident happened 3 miles (5 km) west of Hardin at around 4:30pm
