Troy woman killed in Thanksgiving crash
November 25, 2017
A 26-year-old Troy woman was killed in a two-vehicle crash Thanksgiving night in Flathead County near Kalispell. The names of those involved have not been released and the crash remains under investigation.

According to the Montana Highway Patrol, the woman was driving a 1993 Nissan Altima south on Montana 35 near Broeder Loop Road at about 7:10 p.m. Thursday when she reportedly veered into the northbound lane.

The driver of a 2004 Chevy Tahoe told Montana Highway Patrol troopers that he was driving around a curve when he saw the Nissan in his lane. The Tahoe driver, 64, from Kalispell, braked and steered to the right in an attempt to avoid a collision. The Altima driver attempted to correct back into the southbound lane when the Tahoe hit her vehicle on the driver’s side door.

The driver of the Altima was not wearing a seat belt. She died at the scene.

The Kalispell man was wearing a seat belt and was not injured.

The road conditions were wet and it was raining at the time of the crash. Alcohol is not being considered a factor in the incident.
