On Monday evening, Helena Police Officers were dispatched to the intersection of US Highway 12 East and Crossroads for a report of a single vehicle rollover crash.

Officers and paramedics arrived and found the driver and front passenger trapped in the vehicle. A third passenger that was in the back seat was out of the vehicle and responsive.

The driver and front passenger were extricated from the vehicle and transported to the emergency room via ambulance with unknown injuries.

Preliminary investigations indicate the driver was eastbound on US Highway 12 East in the westbound lane.

It appears the driver attempted to change onto the proper side of the road by driving over the center median. Once over the median, the vehicle darted across the intersection, collided with the signal pole, and rolled several times.

Injuries to the occupants are unknown at this time as the investigation is active.
