A two-vehicle head-on crash that occurred at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday on Highway 210 near the Brainerd Lakes Regional Airport, just east of Brainerd, sent both drivers to the hospital and caused a traffic delay in both lanes for 90 minutes. State Patrol Capt. Mark Jonassen said the accident happened when a man driving a Nissan Altima in the eastbound lane crossed over the center line and hit a Buick Crossover driven by a woman. Jonassen said the names of the victims were to be released later today.
