HELENA, Mont. (AP) - A 17-year-old Helena girl was killed and three other people were injured in a three-vehicle crash north of the city.

The Montana Highway Patrol says the victim was southbound on Applegate Drive Thursday afternoon when she turned left onto Lincoln Road, into the path of a full-sized pickup pulling a fifth-wheel camp trailer. The pickup truck and camper rotated and landed on top of another passenger vehicle. The driver of that vehicle had to be extricated.

Lewis and Clark County Coroner Mickey Nelson identified the victim as Mariah Nelson Swingley. Her passenger, the driver of the pickup and the driver of the third vehicle were taken to the hospital with injuries that Nelson did not believe were life-threatening.
