Two people were taken by ambulance from the scene of a two-vehicle crash at Highway 3 west of the airport around noon on Monday. 

When police arrived, a Budget Rental truck driven by a 41-year-old male, was on the side of the road facing west, according to a Billings Police Department news release. 

The driver of the truck had attempted to make a turn left on the double yellow line and stuck a 2007 Chrysler 300 that was also westbound. The Chrysler was struck on the passenger side.

The 64-year-old female and 71-year-old male passengers in the Chrysler were transported for further medical treatment. While both were taken by ambulance, the man appeared only to have superficial cuts and the woman was taken in for non-life-threatening injuries.

The Chrysler had to be towed from the scene.

The 41-year-old man was cited for crossing the double line and having unrestrained children in the truck, according to the release.
