Print Article

A Columbia Falls woman was killed in a two-vehicle crash on Montana Highway 35 just north of Creston Thanksgiving night.

Law enforcement officials say Frankie Elaine Sizemore, 28 was driving a 1993 Nissan Altima southbound on the highway near Broeder Loop Road at 7:06 p.m. when she reportedly veered into the northbound lane.

The driver of a 2004 Chevy Tahoe told Montana Highway Patrol troopers that he was driving around a curve when he saw the Nissan in his lane. The Tahoe driver, 64, from Kalispell, braked and steered to the right in an attempt to avoid a collision. Sizemore attempted to correct back into the southbound lane when the Tahoe impacted her vehicle on the driver’s-side door, according to the incident report.

Sizemore was not wearing a seat belt. She died at the scene.

The Kalispell man was wearing a seat belt and was not injured.

The road conditions were wet and it was raining at the time of the crash. Alcohol is not being considered a factor in the incident.

The incident is being investigated by the Montana Highway Patrol.
