Sunday afternoon a vehicle crash sent all passengers to the hospital in Lake County near Nine Pipes Lodges.

Montana Highway Patrol Trooper Gallegos says that one vehicle was turning from Eagle Pass Trail and failed to yield to a truck towing a trailer, the truck then struck the back of the other vehicle.

Both vehicles caught on fire, and MHP Trooper Gallegos says it is unknown how the fire started.

Both passengers are being transported to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

Trooper Gallegos said that alcohol may be a factor.
