Posted:

HELENA, Mont. (AP) -- The Montana Highway Patrol says a gust of wind toppled a semi tractor-trailer onto the guardrail on U.S. Highway 2 near Browning, killing a 40-year-old Wisconsin woman.

The patrol says a 59-year-old Poplar, Wis., man was driving the semi westbound Sunday afternoon when the wind blew it on its side. The guardrail went through the cab of the truck, killing the passenger. Neither name has been released.
