Crash involving military explosives close Montana highway


News Staff - February 11, 2019

BROADUS, Mont. - A crash involving three trucks, one of them a military truck, closed Highway 212 between Broadus and Alzada in southeastern Montana Monday.

The Carter County sheriff confirmed the crash that shut down a section of the highway on Monday morning. Sheriff Neil Kittelmann says the crash involved three semi trucks, one of which was carrying what he called “military projectiles.”

Kittelmann says the crash happened between Hammond and Boyes.

Kittelmann said two semi trucks collided and a third semi crashed into them. The third semi went into a ditch.

No injuries were reported.

The Carter County Sheriff’s Office and Montana Highway Patrol kept the nearly 60-mile stretch of highway closed until the accident scene could be cleared. It was reopened Monday night.

Kittelmann said the Air Force assisted in clearing the military projectiles.
