Railroad crossing safety tips for Montana drivers


Railroads play an important part in Montana's economy. Long freight trains carry the state's oil, coal and agricultural products to markets throughout the nation. But trains can be deadly, especially where their tracks cross roads and highways. There are over 3,500 railroad crossings in Montana. The nonprofit group Operation Lifesaver has published some safety tips that can help prevent death and serious injury to motorists.

Montana head-on collision kills 1, injures 1


A tragic accident in north central Montana has injured a woman and killed a 17-year-old girl. The accident happened near Box Elder, in Hill County. According to the local sheriff's office, the 17-year-old Shawmut girl was driving north on U.S. Highway 87 shortly after 6 p.m. on a recent Sunday afternoon.

Montana man killed in head-on collision


When a vehicle crosses the centerline of a highway into the opposite lane of traffic at a high rate of speed, the drivers of vehicles in the opposite lane have very little time to react. All too often the result is a high-speed head-on collision resulting in death or serious injury. Perhaps due to the long distances traveled and the potential for driver fatigue, these types of accidents are not uncommon in Montana. Recently one such crash killed a 66-year-old Bozeman man and left another man seriously injured.
