A crash on Interstate 90 in Belgrade left one woman dead and a man injured on Sunday, according to the Montana Highway Patrol.

The crash happened around 10:44 a.m. on Sunday according to the MHP crash report.

A 31-year-old Whitefish man driving a Toyota RAV 4 was entering I-90 westbound at mile marker 298. Due to weather conditions, he could not see a semi-truck parked on the interstate.
