A Harlem woman was killed in a motor vehicle accident after 4 a.m. Sunday.
The Montana Highway Patrol has not released the name of the victim as of this morning but have confirmed that the crash involved a fatality.
Highway Patrol reported on its website databases that the fatal crash occurred near mile marker 393 on U.S. Highway 2, east of Havre city limits in Blaine County.
MHP officers were dispatched to the scene at 4:18 a.m. Sunday and arrived at 4:35.
An Associated Press article states that the Harlem woman was 50 years old and 29-year-old and 21-year-old passengers were both injured when the minivan they were in went down a ditch and steep embankment while they were traveling east on Highway 2. The Dodge Caravan drifted to the left side of the road.
Whether alcohol or speed had to do with the crash is unknown.
Highway Patrol said that the woman who died was wearing a seatbelt, but was doing so incorrectly.
Calls to the Blaine County Sheriff’s Office for confirmation of a coroner’s report went unanswered.
