Scene of a Grand Ave. crash in Billings Sunday where three occupants of a Toyota Camry fled the scene on foot.

Becker said the Camry was traveling southbound on 12th Street West approaching the intersection with Grand Avenue at a high rate of speed.

The Camry didn't slow down for the stop sign on 12th Street West before traveling out onto Grand Avenue.

The Camry t-boned a Chevrolet Captiva traveling westbound in the right hand lane of Grand Avenue. The force of the impact caused the car to flip on its side.

The Captiva was occupied by a Billings male who was transported to a Billings hospital as a precaution, Becker said.

Police detected alcohol bottles in the Camry and found that the vehicle was registered in Hardin, Becker said.
