Two seriously injured in Ennis crash
ENNIS - Three vehicles were involved in a head-on collision just north of Ennis on Monday afternoon, June 11.
Montana Highway Patrol, the Madison County Sheriff’s department, Montana Department of Transportation and the Ennis and Harrison Fire Departments responded to the collision around 4:30 p.m.
According to Montana Highway Patrol, a passenger car heading northbound out of Ennis attempted to pass and collided head-on with a semi-truck that was heading southbound. The truck then continued to travel a number of feet southbound and crossed into the northbound lane, colliding head-on with the Suburban.
The cab of the semi-truck became fully engulfed in flames, but the driver was able to get out of the cab and assist a bystander in helping the driver of the Suburban out of her vehicle. That driver is expected to recover from minor injuries.
As of press time, no fatalities have been reported associated with the crash.
The driver of the semi-truck was treated at Madison Valley Medical Center for mild burns, while two of the occupants from the other vehicles were life-flighted out of Ennis with serious injuries. Montana Highway Patrol continues to investigate the crash, and it is unknown as of yet whether alcohol was involved.
