COOL, Texas (AP) - Five people, including two young children, have been injured in a two-car collision west of Fort Worth in Parker County.

Authorities say the driver of a car trying to cross U.S. Highway 180 pulled out of a private drive and collided with another car on the highway. The second car left the road, rolled over in the highway median and a 1-year-old and an 11-month-old were ejected.

The Mineral Wells Index reports (https://bit.ly/2q6AFpV ) the children were taken by helicopter Saturday afternoon to Cook Children’s Hospital in Fort Worth. Three adults in the overturned car were taken by ambulance to a hospital.

Authorities say the driver of the other car, an 82-year-old woman from Weatherford, was not hurt. She’s received a citation for failing to yield the right of way.
