UPDATE: (8:30pm) Montana Highway Patrol has confirmed one person was killed in a head-on collision Sunday afternoon on Highway 87, four miles south of Fort Benton.
According to MHP, a Ford F150 was driving northbound by a 21-year-old female from Box Elder; in the vehicle with her was a 37-year-old male, also from Box Elder. The driver attempted to make a pass, and hit a Chevy Silverado head on. The Chevy was driven by a 54-year-old male from Wolf Creek; also in the vehicle with him was a 50-year-old female from Wolf Creek, a 19-year-old female, and a 44-year-old female, also of Wolf Creek, who was partially ejected and pronounced dead on the scene.
Both vehicles rolled onto their tops. Everyone was wearing a seatbelt except the 44-year-old victim, and the 19-year-old female who was in the same vehicle.
Every person involved received medical treatment.
It is unclear at this time if charges will be filed against the 21-year-old female driver of the Ford F150. Drugs and alcohol do not appear to be factors, but speed is.
The identity of the victim has not yet been released.
