Canadian man killed Sunday in semi wreck near Butte
A Canadian man was killed in a semi wreck Sunday morning near Butte.
Montana Highway Patrol troopers tell us the semi-truck driver, a Canadian man in his late sixties, was killed after his truck drove down into the median, eventually jumping a frontage road and landing between two bridge decks.
Troopers tell us the man was driving north on Interstate 15, near mile marker 99 -- just 10 minutes south of Butte when his vehicle went off the road missing a curve.
Troopers say they do not believe the wreck was caused by bad weather. They say the cause of the crash is still under investigation.
The name of the semi-truck driver has not yet been released.
