BILLINGS - Three people were injured in a head-on collision early Sunday afternoon.
A white car with Wyoming plates was traveling west on King Avenue near 72nd Street when it braked rapidly without properly signaling a turn.
This caused the following vehicle, a red Chevy Avalanche, to slam on its brakes and veer into oncoming traffic.
The Avalanche struck a Ford Explorer traveling eastbound on King head-on. The Explorer rolled several times.
After the collision, the Wyoming car drove away.
The male driver and female passenger in the Explorer, both from Billings, had to be extricated from the vehicle.
Their injuries were not disclosed on scene but both were immobilized and were taken to the hospital.
The driver of the Avalanche was also treated for minor injuries.
The Montana Highway Patrol says that citations will be issued once the investigation wraps up.
