The vehicle hit a northbound car carrying two Whitefish residents. The passenger of the second vehicle was taken to North Valley Hospital and the two drivers were taken to Kalispell Regional Medical Center. The driver and passenger in the second vehicle were in critical condition on Friday afternoon. The Columbia Falls man had suffered serious injuries.

The northbound lanes of U.S. Highway 93 were blocked for more than an hour as police cleared the area.
