All three occupants were taken to a Billings hospital with one 16-year-old girl sustaining the most serious injuries, Winden said. The crash was reported around 4:30 a.m. Saturday.
Traffic was diverted and Rimrock Road was closed between 54th St. W and 62nd St. W. for most of Saturday. Rimrock Road is now open, according to a tweet from the Billings Police Department's Twitter account.
