The Montana Highway Patrol says a 26-year-old Whitefish woman was killed in a two-vehicle collision on U.S. Highway 2 about 7 miles west of East Glacier Park.

The patrol says Amy K. Searles was westbound Monday afternoon when her car collided with an eastbound pickup truck carrying a family from Milk River, Alberta.

The patrol says Searles was in the wrong lane and her car sideswiped the pickup. Searles’ car ended up in water in the ditch. She died at the scene.

Trooper Terrance Melton says the occupants of the pickup were not hurt.
