One person died and two were injured in a Sunday evening crash in Kalispell. 

A Toyota Tundra pickup was traveling south around 4:55 p.m. along Whitefish Stage Road when the driver, a 30-year-old man from Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, tried to make a left-hand turn. A Polaris ATV was headed north along the same road at a high rate of speed when it hit the passenger side of the pickup, according to a press release from Montana Highway Patrol. 

The ATV was driven by a 41-year-old man from Kalispell, with a 43-year-old woman from Marion riding in the passenger seat.
