SUV Rollover Crash Wednesday Morning
A rollover crash near Laurel sent two people to a Billings hospital this morning at about 7:45. An SUV came to rest on its roof in the median near the East Laurel exit of Interstate 90. According to the Montana Highway Patrol, the SUV was eastbound in the passing lane as it went on the overpass before the exit. The GMC Yukon attempted to come back into the driving lane, but it was occupied by another vehicle. The driver attempted to correct, but swerved, hitting a steel post and a cable. The Yukon flipped one-and-a-half times. The male passenger reportedly had his arm pinned in the sunroof. Both driver and passenger had to be extricated by first responders. Traffic on I-90 was limited to one lane in each direction. The unidentified married couple from Cody, Wyoming were taken to Billings Clinic. The extent of their injuries is unknown.
