State Route 92 in Half Moon Bay was closed for about an hour Wednesday afternoon following a head-on collision that injured two drivers and blocked the highway in both directions.
According to San Mateo County sheriff’s Deputy Rebecca Rosenblatt, the collision was reported at 3:02 p.m. just east of the intersection of State Route 92 and Highway 1. The road was reopened at 4:15 p.m.
A person driving a vehicle in the westbound direction crossed the center divide for unknown reasons, Rosenblatt said. The vehicle then struck another vehicle traveling east.
The driver heading in the westbound direction had to be extricated from the vehicle and was taken by helicopter to an area hospital, Rosenblatt said. The other driver was transported via ambulance to a hospital. Both victims were conscious at the scene, Rosenblatt said.
