BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — Two people were killed and four were injured in a head-on crash on U.S. 310 in south-central Montana.
The Montana Highway Patrol says a northbound Chevy Malibu driven by a 66-year-old man from Mercer Island, Washington, crossed into the southbound lane near Bridger and crashed head-on into a Pontiac driven by a 29-year-old man from Powell, Wyoming, on Monday afternoon.
All four people in the Malibu were from Washington state. Three were hurt and one was killed.
The Billings Gazette reports 67-year-old Jeannette Wong, of Mercer Island; and 24-year-old Wesley Johnson, of Powell, were killed. Wong’s daughters Leigh and Robin were in the Malibu and Johnson was in the Pontiac.
Wong managed property in Chinatown, which included Young Bakery, King’s Barbecue, Shanghai Garden, and the Seoul Tofu House Korean restaurant. A 32-year-old Seattle woman in the Malibu was critically injured and taken to a Billings hospital. The driver of the Malibu and a 24-year-old female passenger, also from Mercer Island, were taken to the hospital in Red Lodge, as was the driver of the Pontiac. (end)
