Coweta County emergency responders assist an injured man involved in a head-on collision Monday afternoon on Buddy West Road.

A two-car accident Monday afternoon in north Coweta County has sent both drivers to the hospital.

The head-on collision occurred around 3:30 p.m. on Buddy West Road, just east of Highway 70/Roscoe Road.

According to Mitch Coggin, Coweta County's assistant fire chief, each vehicle had one occupant - a male in a SUV and a female in a van.

"Both vehicles had heavy front-end damage and both drivers were entrapped," Coggin said. "It took us about 12 minutes to free them. The male driver was flown to Atlanta Medical Center with multiple injuries. The female driver was taken to Piedmont Newnan Hospital by ground ambulance."

Engines 6 and 2, Rescue 1 and Car 1 responded, he added.
