SEELEY LAKE - An Oregon woman is dead after a one-vehicle accident Wednesday night between Seeley Lake and Condon.
According to the Montana Highway Patrol, a 42-year-old woman from Oregon was killed and her passenger, a 33-year-old man from Condon was taken to St. Patrick Hospital in Missoula.
The crash happened around 6 p.m. on Montana Highway 83, about 25 miles north of Seeley Lake.
Troopers said the woman was driving her van north on the highway when she failed to negotiate a curve and went off the road into a ditch. The van then came out of the ditch, crossed the highway, went over a guard rail and slammed head-on into a tree.
The woman died at the scene. Authorities said neither person in the van was wearing a seat belt.
