MIDLAND COUNTY - Confusion may have lead to a head-on collision on Highway 80 that sent 2 people to the hospital.

Troopers tell NewsWest 9 the driver of the pick up was going the wrong way when he slammed into another car.

Both ended up in the median.

Troopers say the man in the pick up is not from here and may have been lost, which would explain why he was driving in the wrong lane.

Both drivers suffered serious injuries.      

The driver of the pick up will be ticketed.
