Two people suffered non-life-threatening injuries in a Thursday morning crash on Highway 87 North between Roundup and Billings, according to the Montana Highway Patrol.

Janeen Jackson, a 67-year-old Roundup woman, was driving south in a 2004 Ford Ranger when she

lost control on the icy roadway shortly after 10 a.m. and drifted into the northbound lane.

She hit a 1997

Ford F-250 hauling a trailer, according to Montana Highway

Patrol Trooper Toman Baukema.

Jackson was taken by ambulance to St. Vincent Healthcare for treatment of minor injuries and was not on listed as a patient on Thursday evening, a hospital spokeswoman said. Her passenger, Carl Brown, 84,

was taken by HELP Flight helicopter to St. Vincent Healthcare with non-life-threatening injuries, Baukema said.

He was in stable condition Thursday evening.

Emergency responders found Brown lying in the roadway, said Montana Highway Patrol Capt. Keith Edgell.

Baukema said that both victims were wearing seat belts, and that none of the three men in the F-250 pickup were injured.

The investigation into the crash is ongoing, the trooper

said Thursday afternoon.
