3 Teens Killed, 1 Injured in Central Montana Rollover

Vehicle carrying four people between the ages of 15 and 18 went off the road early Wednesday

GREAT FALLS — Three teenagers died and a fourth was injured in a rollover crash on U.S. Highway 87 in central Montana.

The Montana Highway Patrol says a sport utility vehicle carrying four people went off the road early Wednesday between Windham and Moccasin.

Trooper Joe DeJong tells the Great Falls Tribune the SUV became airborne, rolled and ejected all four occupants — two boys and two girls. None was wearing a seat belt.

R.J. “Dick” Brown, deputy coroner for Judith Basin County, identified the girls who were killed as Krissy M. Oset and Cora E. Meckel, both 14 and of Roundup. The name of the teen boy who died was not released, and the extent of injuries suffered by the other teen was not immediately known.
