Emergency crews responded to a head-on crash just north of Regina Thursday morning that sent two people to hospital.

It happened shortly before 7 a.m. CST on Highway 6 near Armour Road.

RCMP said the Ford Explorer SUV, driven by a 24-year-old woman, had just turned onto the highway and was struck head on by a northbound car, a Dodge Neon.

The woman, and the 33-year-old man driving the car were taken to hospital and are listed in stable condition.

A third vehicle, a Park Avenue car, drove into the ditch to avoid crashing. The driver of that vehicle wasn't hurt. 

Two ambulances, RCMP and two fire crews responded to the scene.

At 8 a.m., the Park Avenue was in the ditch, the Neon was close to the ditch and the SUV was on the highway blocking one of the lanes.

Firefighters used hydraulic equipment to remove the driver from the Neon, amid bitterly cold temperatures. A child's car seat was spotted next to the wreckage.

It's not known if weather was a factor, but there was ice fog in the area and the temperature was below -30C.

Police have charged the woman with driving without due care and attention.
