A head-on crash early Friday in Fort Wayne left two people injured.

One was in critical condition, according to the most recent update Friday evening from the Fort Wayne Police Department.

A full-sized van towing a trailer and a pickup truck collided about 6:15 a.m. on Lower Huntington Road just west of Old Trail Road, police said.

The van was traveling east, and the truck was heading west.

Both vehicles sustained heavy damage.

The police department said the driver of the pickup truck was taken to a hospital and listed in critical condition.

The van’s driver, meanwhile, was taken in serious condition to a hospital.

Their names were not released pending family notification.

There were no passengers in either vehicle.

Lower Huntington Road was closed for about three hours between Elzey and Beaty streets.
