GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) - Authorities say a 46-year-old man has died after his pickup truck collided with a semi-truck on U.S. Highway 87 near Loma.

Chouteau County Undersheriff Larry Ophus (OH’-fuss) says William Harold Emerson of Vaughn died in the crash Monday afternoon.

The Montana Highway Patrol said Emerson was southbound in a Chevy pickup truck when he failed to negotiate a curve and crossed the center line. The truck then struck the front of a northbound semi-truck.

The 51-year-old man driving the semi was taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The cause of the crash is still under investigation.
