Traffic is flowing again on Ridge Avenue and Oakton Street after a two-car collision at the intersection around 6 a.m. this morning that left both drivers hospitalized.

A witness said both cars were severely damaged in the collision and were hauled away on a flat-bed tow truck.

Traffic from both Ridge and Oakton was detoured onto surrounding side streets for over 90 minutes while police and fire units dealt with the accident scene.

Information on the extent of injuries to the drivers wasn’t immediately available.
