BUSBY - One woman was killed in an early morning crash on Highway 212.
The crash happened shortly after 5am Tuesday this morning between Crow Agency and Busby.
The woman, whose name has not been released, was driving a Dodge Durango south in the northbound lane, when she drove into a GMC pickup truck that attempted to avoid the crash by driving off of the road.
The woman's five children, ranging in age from 5 months to their late teens, were also injured.
Highway Patrol Trooper Justin Kirchheck says it's unknown at this time why the woman was driving in the wrong lane.
The driver of the GMC pickup, a man from Huntley, was not injured.
Trooper Kirchheck says it is likely the victim died instantly.
Three of the children in the vehicle were taken to a hospital in Hardin, while the other two children were taken to Billings for treatment, one of them by HELP Flight.
All the children suffered non life-threatening injuries, and are expected to recover.
