SHARE Utahn dies when pickup crashes west of Butte

RAMSAY, Mont. — A Utah man was killed when his pickup truck crashed along icy Interstate 90 west of Butte, the Montana Highway Patrol said Sunday.

Killed was:

Henning Jensen Sr., 59, Salt Lake City.

The patrol said Jensen apparently suffered a heart attack, and his westbound vehicle went out of control, sliding into the median and rolling onto its side Saturday night.

The patrol said Jensen, who was wearing a seat belt, was partially ejected and crushed, his death the result of those injuries and not the heart attack.

The death pushed the Montana road toll for this year to 13, compared with nine on Jan. 27, 2001.
