A two-vehicle accident involving a Ford SUV and an automobile at the intersection of Highways 91 and 44 on Thursday evening claimed the lives of three women.
The accident occurred at approximately 10:52 p.m. when a 2007 Chevrolet Monte Carlo driven by Emily Neido, from Riverton, Wyo., apparently ran a stop sign at the intersection and was T-boned by Norman Willard Vanderbush of Conrad.
Vanderbush, a 2009 graduate of Conrad High School was driving a Ford Explorer heading west.
He was wearing a seat belt and was transported to a hospital in Great Falls by Mercy Flight.
