A head-on collision Sunday morning in Harrison County sent two people to the hospital.
It happened just after 10:00 a.m.  in Locust Heights.  Police told 5 News a woman was driving north on Rt.19, when she somehow crossed the center line into the southbound lane.  She crashed head-on with a man driving a truck. 
Police weren't able to tell us the extent of her injuries, but she was flown to Ruby Memorial Hospital.  The driver of the truck wasn't hurt, but his passenger had to be taken to United Hospital Center.
We talked with a neighbor who witnessed the accident.
Jane Mason owns the property HealthNet landed on.  She said, "I seen the traffic was stopped down there.  Then, I heard ambulances and fire trucks.  So, I decided to go down and see what was going on.  We've lived here more than fifty years, and it's probably the worst we've ever seen."
Mason also told us the Locust Heights Road was closed down for a little more than two hours, while crews cleaned up the mess. 
The Harrison County Sheriff's Department is investigating.
