MOIESE – The Lake County Coroner’s Office has released the name of a woman killed Monday morning in a head-on crash on icy roads near Moiese and the National Bison Range.

Patricia S. McDougall, 60, of Plains, died when she lost control of her vehicle, slid into the westbound lane and struck an oncoming pickup truck on Montana Highway 212.

McDougall died at the scene. Lake County undersheriff and deputy coroner Dan Yonkin said alcohol was not a factor.

Two people in the pickup were treated at a hospital and then released.
