One person dead after multi-vehicle Reserve Street accident


MISSOULA, Mont. - A 34-year-old man is dead after a three vehicle accident on Reserve Street Sunday morning.

Missoula Police said the call came in around 10:30 a.m. Sunday, after a van traveling north on the Reserve Street Bridge crossed over and was hit by two vehicles in the south bounds lanes.

Police said each car was occupied by only a driver, and that all three were taken to the hospital with injuries. The man driving the van that crossed into oncoming traffic died in the hospital Sunday afternoon.

Traffic was completely closed in the south bound lanes of Reserve for about two hours while officers investigated and the vehicles were towed. The north bound side of the bridge was limited to one lane of traffic.

Police said the cause of the wreck is still under investigation, but that slick roads may have had something to do with it. It was seven degrees at the time of the accident.
