Officials identify victims of crash near Babb
KALISPELL, Mont. (AP) — Glacier County authorities have identified the three people killed in a single-vehicle rollover crash near Babb, just east of Glacier National Park.
The sheriff's office says the crash at 8:30 p.m. Monday killed 31-year-old Elizabeth Edna Chavez, 29-year-old Simon Tony Chavez and 5-year-old Kristian Chavez. A 2-year-old girl was treated for minor injuries and a 1-year-old boy was hospitalized in critical condition.
The Montana Highway Patrol says four of the five passengers were ejected from the car. The three victims were not wearing seat belts and the 1-year-old was in a car seat that was not properly fastened into the vehicle.
The victims had been living in the Babb area.
