Video walks you through the aftermath of the ‘mass casualty’ dust storm pileup in Montana


A Facebook user shared surreal video captured shortly after a major pileup crash that claimed multiple lives on Friday.

The pileup occurred on July 15 during a major dust storm on I-90 near Hardin, Montana. Six people lost their lives, including two children.

Facebook user Jose Strickland survived the pileup and shared his story, as well as video he captured soon after the crash.

Strickland said, “Visibility dropped in an instant, and we found ourselves skidding to a stop and everyone scrambling off the road to safety. My heart goes out to the families affected. Today I helped save a mans life and lost another before we could get him some help. In total there were about 7-8 fatalities in what was about a 20 car pileup. I still can’t get over the fact that we were 1 truck away from disaster. For whatever reason my Dad Raul Joseph Beger decided to take the wheel after lunch and to say the least I’m glad his experience came into play.”
