Two peo­ple were flown to the hos­pi­tal fol­low­ing a head-on col­li­sion Wed­nes­day night near Mill­stadt.

First re­spon­ders were called to the area of Dou­glas Road and Flo­rav­ille Road just af­ter 6 p.m. for a two-car ac­ci­dent, Chief Kurt Pell­man of the Mill­stadt Fire De­part­ment said.

The driver of a Cadil­lac, Daniel F. Ward, of Cadet, 32, Mis­souri, was trav­el­ing west­bound on Dou­glas Road when he swerved for un­known rea­sons and crashed into an east­bound Buick, driven by Bradley J. Smith, 54, of Smith­ton, a news re­lease from the St. Clair County Sher­iff’s De­part­ment stated.

Crews ex­tri­cated both men from the scene, Pell­man said. Both were taken to nearby hos­pi­tals for their in­juries.

Ward was found to be driv­ing on a re­voked driver’s li­cense, the re­lease stated. The sher­iff’s de­part­ment con­tin­ued to in­ves­ti­gate the ac­ci­dent on Thurs­day.
