BILLINGS - Two pickup trucks collided on Thursday morning and shut down part of Highway 87 north of Billings.
Trooper Toman Baukema with the Montana Highway Patrol said a layer of ice caused the driver of a Ford Ranger to lose control and collide with a Ford Pickup truck just before 10 a.m.
The 2000 Ford Ranger was driven by Janeen Jackson of Roundup. Her passenger, Carl Brown, 84, of Roundup was taken by Help Flight to a Billings hospital for non life threatening injuries.
Jackson was treated and released for minor injuries.
Baukema said Jackson was heading south on Highway 87 when she lost control of the vehicle.
Jackson's vehicle crossed the center line and struck a 1997 Ford Pickup truck that was hauling a utility trailer with two ATV's.
No one in the Ford pickup truck was injured.
Baukema said no citations were issued as of Thursday afternoon and the crash is still under investigation.
The crash happened about 14 miles north of Billings. The highway was shut down for nearly one hour.
