Cascade County Fatal Accident Victim Identified

Posted: Updated:

A tragic five car accident occurred Monday just after 1 P.M. on Vaughn Frontage Road taking the life of one woman. The Cascade County Sheriffs office has reported that the woman who died in the accident has been identified as 21-year-old Chelsea Stanfield. Stanfield was driving a Jeep eastbound on Frontage road near Manchester where she lost then control hitting a westbound vehicle, rolled, and came to rest in the ditch on the north side.

"Obviously the roads are full of snow or ice, just give yourself time for where you are going so you don't need to be in a hurry. Realize that if you have a four wheel drive vehicle, yes it will help you to get up and going a little easier, but four wheel drive or two wheel drive once you lose control of your vehicle it is not really going to help you." says Geoff Groshelle from the Montana High Patrol.

Stanfield died at the scene and all other drivers only sustained minor injuries. Montana Highway Patrol said Stanfield was driving too fast for weather conditions and was not wearing a seatbelt, the accident is still under investigation at this time. Great falls police responded to a total of 38 accidents, only two of them injury.
