BILLINGS — A head-on crash on North 27th Street just north of the Rimrock Road intersection resulted in four people being take a hospital in Billings on Tuesday at about 9 p.m.

Billings Police Lt. Brian Krivitz said the crash investigation is in its initial stages, and said a white 4-door Chrysler was northbound on North 27th Street when for unknown reasons the driver crossed the center line.

The Chrysler collided head-on with a southbound silver 4-door Toyota on North 27th Street.

The Chrysler was occupied by one male. The Toyota was occupied by a male, female, and young child.

Billings firefighters were seen using the "jaws of life" to free some of the crash victims. Krivitz couldn't say how many had to be extracted.

All four people were taken by ambulance to a Billings hospital.

Krivitz said speed is considered a factor in this crash but it's too early to tell if drugs or alcohol were involved.

Krivitz credited the Billings Fire Department and ambulance crews with American Medical Response for their quick arrival and professional work freeing the victims.
