HELENA, Mont. (AP) - Authorities say one person has died after a head-on collision involving a semitrailer in western Montana.

The Independent Record reports (https://bit.ly/2k2Z5RN ) that 40-year-old Kris Harrison died at the scene of the Tuesday crash in East Helena. Authorities say the victim was from Great Falls but living and working in Helena at the time.

Montana Highway Patrol Trooper Amanda Villa says Harrison was headed east in a Chevy Malibu when he crossed into the westbound lane and struck a semitrailer head-on. The semi had been carrying an empty car hauler.

Harrison’s car spun into a ditch while the semitrailer went into an opposite ditch.

The driver of the semitrailer was treated for minor injuries at the crash site and released.
