    Two people were taken to the hospital, one by LifeStar, after their cars collided head-on on Route 6 in Columbia Friday morning.

    Police said Amy Nadile, 42, of Windham, was driving westbound on Route 6 near Roses Bridge Road when a car traveling in the opposite direction crossed into the westbound line and struck Nadile's vehicle.

    Nadile and the other driver, 49-year-old Debra Renouf, of Mansfield, were taken to Hartford Hospital. Both women were treated for broken legs, and Renouf also suffered a chest injury, according to police.

    LifeStar transported Renouf to the hospital, state police said.
