ACCIDENT

Four people were hospitalized after a two-vehicle collision in the 3300 block of Stillhouse Lake Road, Harker Heights police said Thursday.

At around 6:36 p.m. Wednesday, emergency services were notified of a two-vehicle accident on the road south of Heights, according to a news release.

Upon arrival, first responders immediately began medical treatment to the four individuals involved in the accident.

According to Heights police spokesman Lt. Stephen Miller, a preliminary investigation indicated a black Hyundai Sonata occupied by two people was traveling north when the driver may have fallen asleep and drifted into the southbound lane.

The Hyundai then collided with a silver Toyota Corolla occupied by two individuals that was traveling south.

The driver of the Toyota was airlifted to Baylor Scott & White Medical Center-Temple, and all other occupants were transported by Harker Heights EMS to the hospital for treatment.

The incident is still under investigation.
