The Associated Press

MISSOULA, Mont. – A 22-year-old woman driving a sport utility vehicle was distracted or fell asleep causing a rollover crash on Interstate 90 in western Montana that killed a 1-year-old boy and injured eight others, including a 6-month-old.

The Montana Highway Patrol says members of a Seattle family were traveling to Great Falls when the crash happened near Superior at about 8:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Sgt. Roman Zylawy says all nine people were ejected from the vehicle. The two youngest children were in car seats that weren’t fastened into the vehicle.

The patrol says the people in the vehicle were a 52-year-old woman, two of her children and five of her grandchildren. Her son’s girlfriend was driving.

The injured were taken to hospitals in Missoula. Their names and conditions have not been released.
