Tractor-Trailer Truck Accident

September 20, 2018

According to the Helena Independent Record, traffic on Interstate 90 near Columbus will likely be limited to one lane through this afternoon, after a semi tractor-trailer truck rolled over onto the highway earlier in the morning.


The truck accident had blocked both westbound lanes for several hours after it was reported at 4:20 a.m., about 5 miles west of Columbus, but the Montana Highway Patrol was able to clear the passing lane later Thursday morning, Montana Highway Patrol Trooper Brett Riesinger said.


The the semi-truck driver said he had swerved to miss a deer in the road, Riesinger said, causing the tractor-trailer truck to drive off the interstate and roll the semi-truck trailer across both lanes. The driver was uninjured and no other vehicles were involved.


Westbound travelers had been re-routed along Montana Highway 10, from Columbus for about 8 miles to the next exit, until single-lane traffic was restored later Thursday morning.
