Nine people are involved in a head-on collision on Highway 200 near Bonner.

It was a head-on-head collision and three vehicles were involved.
One man who was in a pickup truck did have to be extracted from his vehicle because his dashboard pinned him up against his seat and he was unable to move.
The Missoula Rural Fire Battalion Chief Blaine Cowan said that that despite being pinned in his truck, the man's injuries appeared to be minor.
Cowan said that the driver and one other person involved in the crash were taken to the hospital.
One person involved in the crash told me it all started when he stopped to turn into Marco Flats Fishing Access Site.
"A gentleman behind us coming full speed had his dog jump in his lap and he couldn't see and he veered and hit us instead of getting around us. So we were hit at about 65, 70 miles per hour, knocked us into the westbound lane, and then a car traveling from the westbound lane ran into us again,” said Jim Stricklend.
This crash did slow traffic in the area because both lanes of Highway 200 were closed for emergency vehicles, but the scene has since been cleared and the crash is under investigation.
