Two sedans were involved in a head-on collision shortly before 6 p.m. Friday on Mountain Road in West Hartford near Spice Bush Swamp, and both drivers had to be extricated from their vehicles, West Hartford Fire Chief Greg Priest said.

Engine No. 1 and Engine No. 2 responded to the crash, along with Battalion Chief William Kall, Priest said.

Both drivers were injured, and the extent of injury was unknown but according to Priest was “likely moderate.” Both were transported to area hospitals.

The McJon Extrication blanket, a recent donation to the department by West Hartford residents Holly and Tom Killeen and their 3-year-old son, Nolan, was successfully used in the extrication procedure, Priest said.

The cause of the crash is under investigation by West Hartford Police.

Mountain Road was closed temporarily in both directions.
