CLIFTON, TX — Two drivers were sent to the hospital in critical condition after a head-on crash in Clifton Monday.

Officials were dispatched to a major crash on SH 6 near FM 4291 around 11:50 a.m.

The Texas Department of Public Safety says a Jeep Renegade traveling northbound crashed head-on into a Hyundai Elantra traveling southbound.

A preliminary investigation determined the Jeep was attempting to turn into a business and was struck by the approaching Hyundai.

Both drivers were transported by air to a hospital in critical condition. The investigation is still active and ongoing.

DPS is encouraging drivers to actively scan the road for vehicles, bicyclists and pedestrians prior to making a left turn.
