Those who operate a vehicle at a high rate of speed are inherently less capable of reacting to a variety of driving scenarios.

Law enforcement agents say the incident began on a recent Sunday just before 4 a.m. as officers attempted to initiate a traffic stop on a car that had been reported stolen.

Car accidents: Head-on crash with semi-truck injures 1 in Montana

Head-on collisions run the risk of ending in disaster in virtually any circumstance. However, when a commercial vehicle is involved, the chances that similar car accidents may pose a significant threat to the safety and well-being of those involved may increase substantially. A recent crash involving similar circumstances in Montana has reportedly left one driver in the hospital with potentially life-threatening injuries.

According to reports, the incident took place at around 12:45 p.m. on a recent Sunday.

Hidden assets could have an impact on the outcome of a divorce

Upon making the decision to dissolve a marriage, many individuals in Montana may wish to begin taking steps to prepare to safeguard their financial futures. However, forming a strategy for property division negotiations can be complex at times, especially if one feels the other party could be hiding assets. Since hidden assets can have a devastating impact on the outcome of a divorce, knowing where to look for similar assets could prove vital.

According to experts, there are a multitude of ways in which one may attempt to conceal assets prior to entering divorce proceedings. Experts suggest that some may attempt to deny that an asset exists or claim that a possession was lost. In other scenarios, a person may also try to keep assets hidden by giving ownership of an asset to a third party or by creating a false debt.

Car accidents: 1 left scene of crash that injured 2 in Montana

Once a collision occurs, drivers have a duty to remain at the scene and check on the safety of any others involved when possible. Unfortunately, this isn't always the case, and those who leave the scene of car accidents may in turn leave others without medical attention for extended periods. Police are reportedly attempting to locate a driver who was involved in a recent crash that sent two individuals to the hospital with injuries in Montana.

The accident reportedly occurred at around 12:30 p.m. on a recent Tuesday during times of slippery road conditions.

Another vehicle slammed into the rear of the first car soon thereafter, reportedly causing substantial damage to the car in the process.
