Two hospitalized after crash near Raymond

Two people were transported to the hospital Wednesday night after a collision near Raymond.

It happened on Highway 79 near Branched Oak Road around 7:00 P.M.

Lancaster County Sheriff deputies say witnesses tell them a car traveling at a high speed, couldn't maneuver a curve, then crossed the center line and hit a pickup head on.

The drivers, who both were trapped, were the only ones in the vehicles.

Deputy Sergeant Mike Novacek says, “The Lexus driver was life-flighted by Star Care 5 to Bryan LGH West.  The driver of the F150 was transported by ambulance.” 

The injuries were considered serious, but not life threatening.  The sheriff's office has not released any names.
