CLINTON - Two Bozeman women remain in a Missoula hospital in critical condition after Sunday's rollover crash on Interstate 90.
The wreck happened at around 4:30 p.m. near mile marker 137, which is between Clinton and Drummond.
The Montana Highway Patrol reports the driver of a small SUV was heading eastbound on I-90 when the vehicle went into the median, crossed the westbound lanes of traffic and then rolled off the side of the highway.
The 18-year-old Bozeman woman who was the driver of the car was wearing a seat belt, according to authorities; she has been treated and released from the hospital. The passengers, a 22-year-old woman and a 27-year-old woman, were both ejected and remain in the St. Patrick Hospital ICU.
Investigators don't believe speed contributed to the crash, but they did find alcohol and drugs on the scene. They're still investigating if those substances played a role in the crash.
