It’s a tragic scene no one wants to see or experience – a car accident. But, injury accidents can happen as we get into the summer months and a more carefree attitude. School has just been out for a week and it’s a feeling of summertime freedom. But, it can also be an accident waiting to happen.

Local emergency agencies including Billings Fire and the BPD urge all drivers to be careful and stay distraction free behind the wheel.

This injury accident happened on Thursday evening on 24th Street near the Rimrock Mall. It’s a reminder that we all need to stay alert and take it easy out on our local roads and highways. Summertime is for fun and hopefully, a safe time too.
