There were no life-threatening injuries as a result of a crash at the intersection of U.S. Highway 93 and Montana Highway 212 last week, according to officials.

Montana Highway Patrol Sgt. Chan Barry said that on Wednesday, Aug. 1, a 1973 Tioga motorhome was travelling south on U.S. Highway 93, approaching the intersection when it slowly began to veer left, entering the northbound lane.

A semi truck was headed northbound, trying to steer to the right but could not avoid impact, Barry said.

He confirmed that the female driver of the motorhome was taken to St. Luke’s Hospital in Ronan by Ronan Ambulance, but her injuries were not life-threatening.

The female, from Kalispell, told first responders she was drowzy, which Barry said appeared to be the case according to witnesses.

The male driver of the semi, from Missoula, was unhurt and not cited.
