Missoula Man Injured In Car Accident

Comments Off

A Missoula man, 49, was injured in a car accident on I-90 near Laurel, Thursday.

He was heading eastbound near the West Laurel exit when his vehicle veered off the left side of the road, according to Montana Highway Patrol.

It appears he overcorrected to the right, crossing two lanes of traffic before going off the ride side of the road where the vehicle struck a highway sign, knocking it down, before coming to rest at the bottom of a small hill.

He was taken to the hospital for the minor injuries he suffered in the crash. Alcohol was a factor in the accident, says Montana Highway Patrol.
