HELENA, Mont. (AP) - One woman died and three others were injured in a five-vehicle pileup in the westbound lanes of Interstate 90 near Laurel during a weekend dust storm.

The Montana Highway Patrol says a 67-year-old woman from Park City was killed in the crash shortly after 3 p.m. Saturday. The 72-year-old Park City man who was driving the crossover vehicle was injured while a 23-year-old man driving a car suffered minor injuries.

Two sport utility vehicles and a semitrailer also were involved, but none of the other drivers were injured.

The Montana Highway Patrol says strong winds kicked up a dust storm that reduced visibility to zero. Officers were still trying to put together the sequence of events that led to the crash.

The victim’s name hasn’t been released.
