The Montana Highway Patrol reports that two people died Thursday in a head-on collision on Highway 310 near Fromberg.

MHP Trooper Brandon Timm said the crash happened just before 8 a.m.

Timm said a red Dodge pickup truck was northbound and drifted across the center and encroached into the southbound lane.

The truck then struck a white Ford pickup truck going the opposite direction.

Both drivers died at the scene and a child passenger in the Dodge was taken to a hospital with a broken leg.

The Montana Highway Patrol plans to fly a drone over the scene to aid in the investigation.

The names of the two victims have not yet been released.
