Two of the 30 cars in Montana were injured



The Montana Highway Patrol (MHP) said on Twitter that when the accident happened, the victim jumped off the Yellowstone River Bridge to avoid being hit by one of the cars. They have been hospitalized and are expected to recover.

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.

MHP initially stated that the cause of the crash was believed to be the ice on the bridge.
The huge shipwreck suspended I-90 Westbound for several hours.

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.

The National Weather Service issued a special weather statement in Billings early on Saturday afternoon, stating that it had observed heavy snow showers of 15 mph per hour entering the area. The statement warned that the affected roads include I-94 and I-90, and the situation may deteriorate rapidly.

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.
