(UPDATE, Sunday morning) One person died in a crash just outside of Great Falls on Saturday night that involved a semi truck and a Dodge Caravan.

The name of the person who died has not yet been released, and the driver of the semi has not yet been found.

The crash was reported to the Montana Highway Patrol at 10:17 p.m. and happened near mile marker 275 along I-15, just south of the Great Falls airport.

According to the Montana Highway Patrol, the semi truck was southbound on I-15 when the driver decided to turn into the “authorized only” section in the median to get to the weigh station.

The Dodge Caravan was northbound on I-15, when the semi turned and entered into the northbound lane.

The Caravan moved into the passing lane to avoid the semi but still made contact with the right rear side of the trailer.

The semi truck driver continued into the weigh station, stopped for a moment, but then drove away.

MHP has not located the semi truck yet, but assumes there is damage on the right rear side of the semi’s trailer.

We will update you when we get more information.
