DILLON — A one-vehicle crash in southwestern Montana killed a 2-year-old boy and injured a 3-year-old girl.

Two women, ages 54 and 30, were taken to the hospital in Dillon for treatment of their injuries. The girl was flown to a hospital in Missoula.

Patrol Capt. Gary Becker tells The Montana Standard that the crash is still being investigated. The victims’ names haven’t been released.
