GREAT FALLS -

The man who was killed in a crash just outside of Great Falls on Saturday night has been identified as Marvin Knutson.

The Cascade County Sheriff/ Office released the man's name Monday.

Knutson, 72, was from Swift Current, Saskatchewan.

Knutson's granddaughter shared photos with MTN.

The crash was reported to the Montana Highway Patrol at 10:17 p.m. and happened near mile marker 275 along I-15, just south of the Great Falls airport.

According to the patrol, a semi truck was southbound on I-15 when the driver decided to turn into the “authorized only” section in the median to get to the weigh station.

The Dodge Caravan was northbound on I-15, when the semi turned and entered into the northbound lane.

The Caravan moved into the passing lane to avoid the semi but still made contact with the right rear side of the trailer.

The semi truck driver continued into the weigh station, stopped for a moment, but then drove away.

The patrol has not located the semi truck, but assumes there is damage on the right rear side of the semi’s trailer.
