SHERIDAN (AP) — A Sheridan man died and two other Sheridan residents were injured when a motorcycle collided with a car in southeastern Montana.
The Montana Highway Patrol said 66-year-old Dennis Carlin was westbound on Secondary Highway 316 Friday afternoon when he crossed into the oncoming lane at a curve near Kirby, which is north of Sheridan.
The driver of an eastbound car tried to swerve to miss the man’s motorcycle, but the two vehicles collided.
The Billings Gazette reports Carlin was thrown from the motorcycle and died at the scene.
A 66-year-old woman who was driving the car and her 43-year-old female passenger were also injured. Details on those injuries were not immediately available.
Names of the two women in the vehicle were not available at press time this morning.
Champion Ferries funeral home is handling Carlin’s services.
