Traffic in the area began moving in all directions shortly after 7 PM.

It came to a stand-still at about 3 P.M.

That's just south of the small town of Ravalli.

Trooper Wayne Bieber says that the driver of a car heading northbound crossed the center line and hit another car head on.

The woman driver of the northbound car was pronounced dead at the scene.

She was in her 60's and from Polson.

The two occupants of the southbound car were transported to a Missoula hospital.

Trooper Bieber says that an investigation into the cause of the crash is on-going.

Roads in the area are snow-covered and MHP advises all drivers to buckle up, slow town, and take time getting to your destination.
