SUPERIOR – A South Dakota man is dead following a crash that happened on Sunday.
The crash happened around 5:20 p.m. Sunday in Mineral County near mile marker 45 of Interstate 90. A 2007 Kenworth truck pulling a trailer was heading westbound when it went left off the road, crossed the median and the eastbound lanes, and down an embankment.
The truck crashed through a fence and into a trailer court, said a dispatcher from the Montana Highway Patrol. It struck an unoccupied, parked Ford F150 truck. The driver of the semi, a 60-year-old man from Sioux Falls, South Dakota, was killed. He was not wearing a seatbelt.
MHP trooper Charles Burton, who is investigating the crash, said the Ford was pushed and hit an adjacent trailer home. The semi trailer kept going and hit a second trailer home. Both homes were occupied at the time, but Burton said none of the occupants were injured in the crash.
He said the Superior area had thick fog and that the roads were wet at the time of the incident, and that the crash is still under investigation.
