Two Injured in U.S. Highway 93 Wreck

By Beacon Staff

Two drivers involved in a crash along U.S. Highway 93 near the Happy Valley intersection sustained non life-threatening injuries Tuesday afternoon.

Montana Highway Patrol reported that the crash occurred after a pickup truck pulled out of the gas station parking lot and onto Highway 93 in the northbound lanes. There was a passenger vehicle already traveling in that lane, a trooper reported, and it struck the pickup on the driver’s side.

The driver of the passenger vehicle was transported to Kalispell Regional Medical Center, and the pickup driver was taken to North Valley Hospital in Whitefish. The crash occurred around 2:45 p.m., and briefly closed northbound lanes of U.S. 93.

As of 3:40 p.m., both lanes were reopened and the scene was clear, according to MHP.
