Two people are dead this morning following a head-on crash west of Bozeman last night.
The crash happened on Highway 84 between Bozeman and Norris. Montana Highway Patrol says a 54 year old man from West Yellowstone was driving west when he apparently failed to negotiate a right hand curve. He swerved in to the east bound lane and struck a vehicle driven by a 24 year old Bozeman woman head-on.
Both were declared dead at the scene. The investigation is on-going as to whether speed and/or alcohol were involved.
The crash happened just before 11 last night at mile marker 24 of Highway 84.
