BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - Authorities have identified a North Dakota man who died in a head-on crash on U.S. Highway 12 in northeastern Montana as a railway worker who was in a company vehicle.

The Billings Gazette (https://bit.ly/2jJgBuv ) reported Thursday that Robert Walter Vann IV, of Minot, North Dakota, died in Tuesday’s crash near the small town of Brockton.

Roosevelt County Undersheriff John Summers says Vann worked for the BNSF Railway Co.

The Montana Highway Patrol says Vann was one of two occupants in a sports utility vehicle that crashed into an oncoming pickup. The SUV driver was trying to pass a snowplow when the accident happened.

Vann was wearing a seat belt and died at the scene.

Three other people were injured.
