Kyler Nerison, a spokesperson for the Montana Department of Justice, told CNN that “the reason seems to be the all-white/zero visibility condition caused by the sudden snowstorm.”
He added that other minor injuries were also reported.
The crash occurred on I-90 westbound near the I-94 split in Lockwood, about six miles northeast of Billings. Nerison said that I-90 WB has been closed until 4:30 PM MST.
New South Wales reported that there has been light snow and mist in the Billings area since Saturday and Saturday morning, with a morning temperature of about 20 degrees Fahrenheit and a maximum temperature of 32 degrees.
