SALADO, Texas — An early morning head-on collision in Central Texas has left one driver hospitalized, officials said.

Around midnight, the Salado Texas Volunteer Fire Department responded to a collision on the interstate.

A red Nissan had been heading south in the northbound lanes when it struck a white Volkswagen, fire officials said.

The driver of the Nissan had to be extricated from their vehicle; they were then transported to a local hospital with what officials said were non-life-threatening injuries.

The driver of the Volkswagen refused treatment or transport, officials said.

An investigation into this incident remains active and ongoing.
