The Flathead County Sheriff’s Office has identified the second person killed in last week’s head-on crash on U.S. Highway 2 north of Glacier Park International Airport.

Marlow James Moschetti, 27, of Kalispell, was one of two people killed in the wreck on July 26. Linda M. Turner, 56, of Sumter, South Carolina was previously identified as the other victim in the crash.

According to Montana Highway Patrolman Jerry Ren, the collision occurred shortly after 4 p.m. near the intersection of U.S. Highway 2 and Conn Road. Moschetti was driving east in a 2008 Chevy Silverado pickup truck at speeds up to 95 miles per hour when the vehicle crossed into the opposing lane and struck a westbound vehicle driven by Turner. The two vehicles immediately caught fire after the collision.

Prior to the collision, the 2008 Chevy Silverado was reportedly swerving all over the road.
