One killed in I-15 crash

KRTV photo(VAUGHN)- The Montana Highway Patrol says one person was killed Saturday night when two vehicles collided on Interstate 15 near Vaughn, with one car catching fire.

KRTV reports the wreck happened around 7:25 p.m. near mile marker 288. 

Troopers were still investigating, but say a Ford truck and a Subaru collided head-on, with one vehicle rolling and one catching fire. It wasn't immediately known which vehicle had burned. The collision happened in the northbound lanes of the freeway. 

There was no initial indication as to whether slick roads may have been a factor.
