Joshua Shapansky of Avon has been identified as the man who died in a collision near Garrison on Tuesday.
According to the Montana Highway Patrol, the crash happened at around 5:20 p.m. when a husband and wife from Montana City were traveling on Highway 12 east towards Helena.
Shapanksy, 32 years old, was driving west and drifted towards the couple's Ford Edge.
Both drivers reacted and steered toward one another striking nearly head-on.
The couple in the other vehicle were both treated and released from the Powell County Memorial Hospital.
The MHP says that Shapansky was not wearing a seatbelt; both people in the other car were wearing seatbelts.
Authorities do not yet know if alcohol or excessive speed were factors in the crash.
The Powell County Coroner released Shapansky's name on Wednesday afternoon.
