Great Falls - A Canadian is facing charges alleging he fled the scene of a fatal Montana crash involving a semitrailer and a minivan.

The Great Falls Tribune reported that Jaroglav Kleberc had been arrested in Texas and charged with negligent homicide and other crimes for the April 15 crash.

Court documents say Kleberc had been driving a semitrailer loaded with wood on Interstate 15 when he illegally turned into an emergency crossing lane.

Knutson died at the crash site, just south of the Great Falls International Airport.
