One Dead And Two Injured In Alcohol-Related Crash In Hamilton

HAMILTON -

A 19-year-old man is dead, and two men injured, after an alcohol-related crash in the Bitterroot Valley Thursday morning. The accident happened before 5:30 a.m. at the intersection of Fairgrounds Road and Eastside Highway, near Hamilton High School.

Montana Highway Patrol troopers said a southbound pick up crossed over the highway's center line, and crashed head-on, into a northbound Northwestern Energy vehicle. Troopers said the 21-year-old driver who caused the accident is being treated for critical injuries in Missoula.

The passenger in the pick up died at the scene. Troopers said neither of the young men in the pickup were wearing seat belts, and alcohol was a factor in the accident. The 56-year-old Northwestern Energy driver suffered minor injuries.
