GREAT FALLS — The Montana Highway Patrol says blowing and drifting snow contributed to a two-vehicle crash in central Montana that killed a Minnesota man over the weekend.
The patrol says 59-year-old Gregory A. Wittrock of Garden City, Minn., was eastbound on U.S. Highway 87 between Moccasin and Hobson Saturday afternoon when his car hit a snow drift near a bridge. Wittrock's car hit the bridge guardrail, spun into the bridge and kicked up snow, decreasing visibility for the driver of a pickup truck, which was traveling eastbound behind the car.
The pickup also hit the snow drift, collided with the car and struck the bridge. Wittrock died at the scene.
