Four Hospitalized After Early Tuesday Morning Crash
Four people were hospitalized early this morning after a vehicle crash in Billings West End. Billings Police responded to the intersection of Rimrock Road and Melrose Lane at about 3am after a 1997 Subaru collided with a 1996 Buick, according to a news release from Sgt. Nathan West.
The Buick was traveling west on Rimrock Road and attempted to turn left into a private parking lot in front of the Subaru when the wreck occurred. Emergency first responders removed the Subaru’s 16-year-old driver and all four of the vehicle’s occupants were taken to Billings hospitals with injuries that were not considered life threatening.
The Buick’s driver, a 55-year-old woman who was cited for failing to yield to oncoming traffic, sustained minor injuries but was not taken to the hospital. All of the Subaru’s passengers were underage. Both vehicles had heavy front end damage and were towed from the scene.
