BUSBY -

Authorities are still looking for the driver who fled the scene after causing a fatal crash near Busby Wednesday.

Montana Highway Patrol Trooper Eric Winburn said Thursday that the driver is male and most likely a resident of Busby.

The man fled the scene in a dark grey SUV, witnesses told investigators, after a trailer he was pulling detached and crashed into an oncoming vehicle.

The driver of the vehicle that was hit by the trailer, a Florida man, was killed in the crash.

Winburn said the victim's female passenger was unharmed.

The accident happened on Highway 212, just before 2 p.m.    

The driver who fled the scene left behind the detached trailer and a vehicle it was carrying.

That vehicle, an SUV, did not have a license plate but the VIN number is registered in Wyoming, Winburn said.

Winburn said he has yet to definitively identify the driver at fault.

The driver faces a misdemeanor charg
e of leaving the scene of a fatal accident.

Police say man promised to get help, fled fatal crash in Eastern Montana

A man suspected of causing a fatal crash in Big Horn County on Wednesday afternoon fled after promising to get help, leaving a Florida man dead and his wife injured, according to the Montana Highway Patrol.

Investigating trooper Eric Winburn said an SUV towing a trailer atop which another SUV was secured, began fishtailing on U.S Highway 212 around mile marker 20 at around 1:25 p.m.

According to Winburn, the male driver of the towing vehicle drove into the opposite lane and then went back as he attempted to control the swerving trailer behind him.

As the driver went back into the westbound lane, the trailer broke from its rusted hitch and “ripped back off the SUV and swung around and caught the corner of the SUV going the opposite direction,” Winburn said.

Winburn described how the unhitched trailer “basically ripped down the side of the SUV” that had been traveling eastbound.

The collision left “the whole driver’s side ripped off,” and “threw the driver and the seat out of the vehicle,” Winburn said.

After the collision, a witness who reported the crash told Winburn the male driver of the dark gray, possibly Jeep SUV, pulled a U-turn, yelled out of his window “I’m going for help,” and “took off” toward Busby, about 10 miles east of the crash.

The about 65-year-old Florida man who had been driving the eastbound SUV was later pronounced dead, and Winburn said the man's wife had minor injuries.

Winburn described the broken trailer hitch as “almost completely rusted out.” He said MHP continues to investigate the incident.



Most of the time the Media....takes down the stories of all the ones who have been killed by loose and defective trailers.....The Insurance Companies Have decided it is cheaper to pay the claims...than to invest and fix the problem...So we Document and Document and point the finger at who is responsible....for Since 1975 Over 20,000 dead...since 1988 over 1.000.000 injured when you include www.dangeroushayrides.org and www.paradesafety.org all by passenger cars that tow trailers.....not assult weapons being used on mass shootings....

Questions that must be answered in yet another death by a passenger car that towed a defective trailers in a rusted and poorly maintained hitch.

Ron J Melancon
President Dangerous  Trailers.Org

Since 1975 over 20,000 dead .... More Dead than people who use assault rifles against Americans.     Since 1988 over 1,000,000 injuries.
Question 1
Why are people towing a trailer Untagged in Violation of Montana State Code and not getting pulled over?
Under state law, all motor vehicles including motor homes; motorcycles and quadricycles; travel trailers; utility trailers; all-terrain vehicles; sailboats over 12 feet in length; motorboats, jet skis and other motorized vessels; and snowmobiles must be registered with the state.
Question 2 
What inspection program does the State Montana Have on the most vital component of the hitch?
Question 3
Safety Chains Used?  Under State Code all trailers must have a Safety Chain however the State Code Is silent as to a specific chain and a way to ensure public safety by a system to ensure the owners dont use dog chain or non rated safety chain from Lowes.
Most law enforcement are clueless .... To this fact see here and read the report and pay attention to last page.  Over 80% of law enforcement have no idea on public safety with trailers.

Question. 4 
Was the trailer a single axle under 3,000 GVWR
Or a double axle trailer over 3,000 GVWR and under Federal Law that superceeds state law which is lacking must be inspected every year and must have wiring breaks and a breakaway cable.
Question 5
Why are people towing trailers and using hitches that are built to no national safety standard?  Why are ordinary people building homemade trailers and allowed on Public roads?
See this 
  http://www.old.dangeroustrailers.org/uploads/Letter_Dated_Aug_2002_From_Normon_Minetta_to_Congressma_Baker.pdf
Then Question 6
Would the Governor of Montana or any other state put their own children into a Homemade Baby Car Seat". Very simple question yes or no?  Answer the question yes or no?
Then why are people towing homemade trailers in front of my family on public roads like this....
