Police said a pickup driving erratically, headed north on Route 11 crossed the center line and struck another pickup headed south on the highway. Rescue crews had to use hydraulic tools to cut two people from the wreckage, while a third was able to get out on his own.

Two people were taken by helicopter to the hospital, while a third was taken by ambulance.
