KALISPELL — One person died and another was injured in a two-vehicle crash on Sunday, October 1, 2023, in Flathead County.
The Montana Highway Patrol reports a 43-year-old woman from Hayden Idaho died and a 22-year-old Kalispell man was injured in the crash that happened shortly before 11:55 a.m. on U.S. Highway 2 near mile marker 103.
A GMC Arcadia driven by the woman from Idaho was headed east on Highway 2 when her vehicle partially drifted into the westbound lane and struck a Chevy Silverado head-on, according to the MHP.
The Idaho woman — who was wearing a lap belt but not her shoulder belt — was pronounced dead at the scene. The Kalispell man was flown to Logan Health with what the MHP report states were “non-life-threatening injuries.”
The Montana Highway Patrol is continuing to investigate the crash.
