MISSOULA, Mont. -

A 72-year-old woman from northwestern Montana has died in a head-on collision on U.S. Highway 93.
    
The Montana Highway Patrol tells the Missoulian (http://bit.ly/Z6Xvwq) that the woman from Arlee died Friday afternoon in the crash near the Schall Flats area.
    
Trooper Terrance Rosenbaum says the woman was driving a Cadillac southbound when she drifted left into the turn lane before veering right and into oncoming traffic where she collided with a commercial truck.
    
Rosenbaum says she might have had a medical condition or fallen asleep.
    
He says the driver of the truck was taken to St. Patrick Hospital for observation but did not appear to have sustained life-threatening injuries.
    
Rosenbaum says debris from the wreck hit a rental car containing a family but they were not injured.
