A head-on collision on Farm-to-Market 439 near Nolanville sent three people to the hospital and closed down the road for nearly two hours Thursday morning.

The crash occurred about 10:30 a.m. when a blue SUV collided with a white pickup truck near the intersection of FM 93, about two miles northeast of Nolanville, said Harpin Myers, a senior trooper for Texas Department of Public Safety.

Myers said the SUV appeared to be in a no-passing lane when the crash occurred. The two people in the pickup had to be extracted from the vehicle by a rescue crew, and it appeared one of them may lose a foot, the trooper said. The drivers of the pickup and the SUV were taken to Scott & White Hospital in Temple by helicopter, and the passenger in the pickup was taken by ambulance.

The road reopened about 12:30 p.m.
