MISSOULA, Mont. -

Multiple ambulances and the Lifeflight helicopter were dispatched to a car accident on I-90, near the Bearmouth Chalet in Clinton.

As many as 20 men were traveling east from Coeur d' Alene, where they just finished a tree planting project. They were on their way to Meridian, Mississippi. Most of the men are originally from Guatemala and were not used to icy road conditions.

3 of the men were injured and rushed to St. Patrick's Hospital in Missoula.

They were traveling in two different vehicles both of which were towing trailers. One of the vehicles rolled and landed upside down in the ditch off of I-90.

One of the men, Luis Vasquez, who was driving one of the vehicles watched in his rear-view mirror as the other vehicle rolled over.
