Fatal crash

Montana Highway Patrol officers investigate the scene of a fatal crash at Neibauer Road and 48th Street West on Monday. A passenger car crashed into a grain bin after colliding with an SUV.

The victim in a fatal crash Monday southwest of ZooMontana has been identified as a 63-year-old Billings resident. 

David Borer was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash Monday afternoon, according to Deputy Coroner Richard Hoffman.

Borer died of multiple blunt force trauma injuries sustained in the crash, Hoffman said. 

He was the driver of a sedan traveling south on 48th Street West that went through a stop sign without stopping, said Montana Highway Patrol trooper Kyle Hayter. 

The car was struck by an SUV traveling west on Neibauer Road. Both vehicles had significant damage; the sedan came to rest against a grain silo, leaving a large dent in the structure. 

A dog was also in the man's car and survived the wreck without obvious injuries. Hayter said the dog would be taken to a local animal shelter. 

The driver of the SUV was wearing a seat belt, Hayter said, but it wasn't clear whether the deceased man was.

The wreck occurred shortly before 3 p.m.

The Yellowstone County Sheriff and Billings Fire Department also responded to the wreck.
