KALISPELL — Icy roads west of Kalispell contributed to a single-vehicle crash that killed two people and injured four others on Tuesday.
The Montana Highway Patrol said the crash happened just before 1:30 a.m., when a Toyota Land Cruiser was heading west on U.S. Highway 2 near McGregor Lake near Marion. The driver lost control on black ice and went off the north shoulder of the road, rolling the vehicle.
Two passengers from Kalispell, a 31-year-old man and a 33-year-old woman, were ejected and killed. Neither was wearing a seat belt.
The driver and other passengers in the Toyota — two men and two women, all wearing seatbelts — were injured in the crash and were taken to the hospital in Kalispell.
The names of the two people killed have not been released, pending notification of family members.
