A 66-year-old Havre woman died after a deer she crashed into on U.S. Highway 87 Friday evening went through the windshield and hit her, a Montana Highway Patrol news release says.

The county coroner was not available to release the name of the woman by printing deadline this morning.

Highway Patrol received a call about the crash at 8:01 p.m. Friday and troopers arrived on the scene, near mile marker 97 on Highway 87, at 8:24 p.m.

The woman was driving a Toyota Rav4 northbound on U.S. 87 when she hit the deer. Both she and the passenger, a 69-year-old man from Havre, were wearing their seat belts, the release says. The passenger was not injured and the woman was pronounced dead after being transported to Northern Montana Hospital, the release says.

Speed, alcohol or drugs are not suspected factors in the crash. The road conditions were dry and the location of the impact is unknown.
