BOZEMAN — UPDATE: 12/6/19, 10:55 AM
A bad lane change near Bozeman at Interstate speed left four vehicles with some damage and sent one person to the hospital.

According to Montana Highway Patrol Trooper Marcus Cook, an eastbound driver made a sudden lane change forcing another vehicle into the guardrail. The driver then immediately tried to return to the driving lane, cutting off another vehicle, forcing it to brake and swerve, hitting the rear of a third car. The first driver then was hit by a Dodge Caravan from Washington state.

All total, four vehicles were involved with one driver taken by ambulance complaining of neck pain.

Trooper Cook stressed the importance of paying attention, especially during high traffic times and at high speeds.

One person is being treated at the scene for injuries. The crash occurred near the Valley Center Spur overpass.
Traffic is reduced to one lane, but is moving at this time.
The crash remains under investigation and this story will be updated if more information becomes available.
