BOULDER, Mont. — Police in Montana say a 26-year-old woman from Salt Lake City died in a multiple-vehicle crash Sunday.

The crash occurred on Interstate 90 westbound on Cardwell Hill between Three Forks and Cardwell around 11:57 a.m. On Monday, the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office identified the victim as Katie C. Montgomery.

The Montana Highway Patrol said the crash occurred after a semi jackknifed on the highway, forcing several vehicles to brake and collide with each other.

In all, the MHP says there were 12 individuals hurt in the crash, of which four were transported to hospitals in Butte and Bozeman.

Helicopters were requested to help transport the victims. However, the weather conditions at the time prevented the helicopters from flying.

Traffic on I-90 was blocked for several hours.

The investigation into the crash, which is being conducted by the MHP, is ongoing.

A *GoFundMe was set up by Montgomery’s family, who said in the description of the fundraiser that the “sudden loss of such a young vibrant life ahs shocked and ratled the lives of her friends and family. We are not prepared to say goodbye!”
