POLSON, Mont. -

Officials have released the name of a 57-year-old woman who died when the pickup truck she was riding in was struck head-on by a wrong-way driver on Interstate 90 in southwestern Montana.
    
Powell County Coroner John Pohle tells KERR-AM that Patricia Graves of Ronan died in the crash shortly after noon on Tuesday just west of Garrison. Her husband, who was driving the pickup, suffered minor injuries.
    
The Montana Highway Patrol says a 41-year-old man was traveling westbound in the eastbound lanes when his sport utility vehicle struck the Ronan couple's pickup.
