Also in the SUV were a 5-year-old boy and girls ages 13 and 15. None of them were wearing seat belts. The injured were taken to the Indian Health Services hospital in Lame Deer.

The three women in the car were taken to the Lame Deer hospital.

Big Horn County Coroner Terry Bullis said he was withholding the victims’ names until he notifies family members.
