HALF MOON BAY -- Two people were hospitalized after a head-on crash on Highway 92 that closed the road in both directions for more than an hour, according to sheriff's officials.
The wreck happened near the Highway 1 intersection when a vehicle traveling west crossed over the center divide and was hit by someone coming from the other direction.
According to San Mateo County sheriff's officials, one person had to be extricated from the wreckage and taken out by helicopter, while the other was transported by ambulance.
Both were conscious at the scene, officials said.
A traffic alert was issued until the roadway was reopened around 4:15 p.m.
No further information about the drivers or what led to the crash was available Wednesday afternoon.
