The wreck on U.S. 212 south of Laurel sent three people to the hospital.
The crash occurred at about 10:10 a.m. on a two-lane section of highway near its intersection with White Horse North Road.
It appeared that the crash occurred when an SUV attempting to pass a semi struck another SUV “nearly head-on,” Montana Highway Patrol Trooper Barry Mitchell told the Billings Gazette.
Mitchell said that one person was taken to an area hospital by air ambulance helicopter, and the other two were taken by ambulance. Emergency crews used hydraulic rescue tools to open up the damaged vehicles and remove the injured people.
The crash remains under investigation.
