A mother and her daughter died in a crash between Vaughn and Fairfield on Friday morning.

The Cascade County Sheriff's Office has identified them as Angela Bonney, 30 years old, and her daughter Parker Ramirez, who just turned seven years old on Thursday.

Both were from Great Falls, according to Undersheriff Cory Reeves.

The head-on crash happened along US Highway 89 near mile marker 13, just east of Ashuelot Hill Road; it was reported to the Montana Highway Patrol at about 8:40 a.m. on Friday.

According to the Sheriff's Office, it appears Bonney was driving toward Fairfield when she lost control on a patch of black ice. She tried to regain control, and crossed over into the oncoming traffic lane and was hit on the passenger side of her vehicle by an oncoming vehicle.

The driver of the second vehicle was taken to Benefis Health System by ambulance with unspecified injuries.

MHP Trooper Danny Sons told KRTV that Bonney was wearing her seatbelt, and her child was in a booster seat. There is no indication that either driver was impaired or speeding.
