BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - A 33-year-old man was killed and another man was injured in a two-vehicle crash on U.S. Highway 212 in Busby.

Big Horn County Coroner Terry Bullis tells The Billings Gazette (https://bit.ly/1ngdFSd) the victim was Lee Joseph Big Back of Busby.

Montana Highway Patrol Trooper Justin Moran says Big Back was westbound in a sport utility vehicle at about 2:30 p.m. Thursday when he turned in front of an eastbound pickup truck. The 35-year-old Busby man driving the pickup was unable to avoid the collision and the SUV rolled.

Both men were taken to the Indian Health Services hospital, where Big Back was pronounced dead. The truck driver’s injuries were not considered life-threatening.

The patrol is still investigating the crash.
