BOZEMAN — A five-vehicle crash south of Ennis in western Montana resulted in eight people being taken to area hospitals.

The Montana Highway Patrol says the crash occurred about 5:40 p.m. Saturday on Highway 287 near Cameron.

Trooper Ashlin O’Connell said a first and second northbound vehicle slowed to turn left into Cameron, and that a third vehicle rear-ended the second vehicle.

The second vehicle spun into oncoming traffic and was hit by a Jeep pulling a camper trailer. A fifth vehicle was hit by debris.

Three passengers had taken to hospitals in Billings, one by helicopter. Five others were taken to local hospitals to be treated for minor injuries.

O’Connell said three of the vehicles were totaled, and the other two had minor damage.
