Update 1:55 p.m. Monday

The Billings Police Department said three people were injured in the crash on Zimmerman Trail.

Police said on social media a 35-year-old man was driving a pickup truck south on Zimmerman when it collided head-on with a northbound passenger car driven by a 68-year-old man with a 64-year-old woman passenger.

The collision sent the truck over the guardrail rail and down an embankment. The driver of the truck was ejected and the truck came to rest at the bottom of the hill, police said.

All three people involved in the accident were injured and taken to the hospital. Their conditions were not known Monday afternoon.

Zimmerman Trail remained closed early Monday afternoon as road crews made repairs to the guardrail damaged in the crash.
