RURAL MONTANA — The Montana Highway Patrol (MHP) is reminding drivers to move over for emergency vehicles after a collision between a semi-truck and a heavy wrecker on Homestake Pass April 17.
According to an MHP Facebook post, a wrecker and other emergency officials were responding to a jackknifed tractor-trailer when another tractor-trailer struck the heavy wrecker, sending the wrecker crew diving for their lives. The post notes that all emergency vehicles at the scene, including the wrecker, had flashing lights illuminating the scene.
No one was injured.
“Please slow down, pay attention, and move over for emergency vehicles,” the MHP Facebook post states. “It’s the law.”
