Woman left at scene of highway crash dies

HELENA – An eastern Montana woman who was left at the scene of a two-vehicle crash northeast of Lincoln has died of her injuries at a Great Falls hospital.

Lewis and Clark County Coroner Bryan Backeberg told the Independent Record that 56-year-old Randon Billman, of Glasgow, died Thursday night.

The suspected other driver, 21-year-old Devon Scott Richie of Wolf Creek, was charged with leaving the scene of Tuesday’s crash without helping Billman or contacting law enforcement. Court records say he intentionally became intoxicated after the crash.

The county attorney’s office said Friday the case is still under investigation and no decision had yet been made about filing additional charges against Richie.
