Billings community mourning local photographer killed in tragic accident

Many in Billings are mourning the loss of Parker Hopkins, a local photographer who was the victim of a fatal accident Tuesday morning on Billings West End.

Yellowstone County Sheriff Mike Linder says his office got a call around 8:20 a.m. Tuesday to an area on the 1600 block of South 32nd Street West. Linder says a man was directing two semi-trailers back towards one another, likely in effort to transfer product, and the man was pinned in between them. He later died due to the injuries.
