BILLINGS, Mont. -

The Montana Highway Patrol has confirmed the identities of two people who were killed in a head-on collision on an Interstate 90 frontage road south of Garryowen.
    
The Billings Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/Uaobtm ) 55-year-old Marilyn Black Eagle of Lodge Grass died at the scene of the crash at about 4:45 p.m. Friday, while 58-year-old Frank Paz of Crow Agency, who had recently lived in Belgrade, died at a Billings hospital.
    
A 4-year-old child was thrown from Black Eagle's car and suffered bruised lungs. Trooper Eric Winburn says the boy was hospitalized in serious condition Saturday night.
    
Winburn says Black Eagle was southbound between Garryowen and Lodge Grass when she pulled out to try to pass another vehicle. She collided with a northbound car driven by Paz.
