BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — The Montana Highway Patrol says two North Dakota men have died in a two-vehicle crash on U.S. Highway 2 west of Wolf Point in northeastern Montana.

Police say the two men, ages 35 and 56, were in the backseat of a westbound Chevrolet Suburban that collided late Friday with a Dodge pickup that veered into the westbound lane.

Police tell the Billings Gazette (http://bit.ly/n2Z4iE) that the driver of the Suburban tried to avoid the collision by swerving into the eastbound land, but the driver of the pickup got back into the eastbound lane at the last moment, hitting the Suburban on the passenger side.

Police say the men who died are from Minot, N.D. Their names have not been released.

The drivers, both from Montana, were taken to area hospitals.
