Victims identified in Montana head-on crash that killed 3

HELENA, Mont. (AP) — The three victims of a head-on crash in west-central Montana were siblings.

Lewis and Clark County Coroner Mickey Nelson says the crash Wednesday morning killed 29-year-old Duchena Tasha Martin and 17-year-old Isaiah Martin, both from Montezuma Creek, Utah, and 28-year-old Shauana Tara Martin from Red Mesa, Arizona.

The siblings were riding in a white truck when it crashed head-on with a silver truck hauling hay bales on U.S. Highway 287 north of Wolf Creek.

Three other passengers in the white truck were injured, including a 12-year-old boy from Arizona, who has been released from the hospital. The others were a 31-year-old man from Arizona and a 29-year-old man from Louisville, Kentucky.

A 69-year-old Helena man and a 66-year-old East Helena man in the silver truck were injured.

The crash is still under investigation.


This story has been corrected to show the Lewis and Clark County coroner released the names of the victims and to restore the last name of Duchena Martin.
