BUTTE, Mont. (AP) - Officials have released the names of a Montana woman and a California man who were killed in a head-on crash on Interstate 90 in southwestern Montana.

Anaconda-Deer Lodge County officials tell The Montana Standard (https://bit.ly/1L412nc ) that 57-year-old Carol Pollock Kennedy of Columbia Falls and 26-year-old Osiris Munoz Riffo of Woodland Hills, California, died in the crash Monday afternoon near Anaconda.

The Montana Highway Patrol says Kennedy was driving eastbound in the westbound lanes when the two vehicles collided. Kennedy’s car caught fire.

Trooper Joseph Fowler says the driver of the second vehicle, a 25-year-old woman from Van Nuys, California, was hospitalized in critical condition in Butte.

Investigators are still trying to determine why Pollock was driving on the wrong side of the interstate.
