Very sad news to report this afternoon - a 44-year-old Bozeman woman is dead after a car accident on Cottonwood and Stucky this morning. Her 7-year-old child was severely injured and is at Bozeman Deaconess Hospital.

It happened around 7:30 this morning when the woman failed to stop at a stop sign at the intersection of Stucky and Cottonwood.  A 29 year old driving a pickup truck tried to swerve to miss the car but couldn't stop from T boning the woman and her child who were in a Subaru. The driver of the truck was also taken to Bozeman Deaconess.  The car ended up stopping in the ditch and starting on fire.
