Browning, MT - Havre Teen Killed in Car Accident on US 89

Browning, MT (July 1, 2024) – A Havre teen died in a car accident near Browning this week, and further details were released on Monday, according to police.

Montana Highway Patrol says that, while traveling north on U.S. Highway 89, the driver of a Cadillac Escalade made a sharp turn, apparently to avoid a separate collision, which caused the vehicle to skid off the road and down an embankment. One passenger was thrown from the car and suffered fatal injuries from the impact.

The passenger, an 18-year-old man, was pronounced dead at the scene. EMTs also assessed at least one injured victim at the scene. However, no information is currently available regarding the suspected cause of the accident. In the interim, an investigation is still ongoing, and citations may be pending.

We offer our sincere condolences to the deceased victim’s family. Our thoughts are extended to any injured victims and their loved ones at this time. We hope for his full recovery.

Fatal Auto Collisions in Montana

The consequences of a vehicle collision can be catastrophic, significantly altering an individual’s existence. An injury victim may not receive the compensation necessary to completely recover after an accident if they do not have the assistance of an attorney. If you are involved in a car mishap, one of the first queries you may inquire is who or what caused the accident. Montana is a “tort” insurance state, which means that you may be able to pursue a claim for damages against another individual if their negligence is the cause of your injuries.

Although the negligence of another motorist is the primary cause of numerous car accidents, some are also the consequence of an automobile defect. Too frequently, defective components, including tires that are susceptible to blowouts, malfunctioning brakes, and explosive airbags, are introduced to the market. Drivers, passengers, and other individuals may sustain catastrophic injuries or even fatalities as a result of these products. If you sustained an injury as a result of an automotive defect, you can also hold these manufacturers accountable for their misconduct.
