MISSOULA – Emergency crews are on the scene of a fatal vehicle crash on Interstate 90 approximately 10 miles east of Missoula. 

The Missoula County Sheriff’s Office says that one westbound vehicle crossed the center line and sideswiped an eastbound RV. They say one person has died at the scene while 7 to 8 others have been taken to area hospitals. 

The Montana Highway Patrol says the crash was reported at 2:27 p.m. at mile marker 111 in the eastbound lanes.

Eastbound traffic on I-90 was temporarily rerouted from Bonner to Turah, but traffic in the eastbound lanes has since re-opened. Delays may still occur in the area.

MHP will be investigating the crash while MCSO conducts the coroner’s investigation.
