An apparent head-on collision Monday at the intersection of Lafayette Parkway and South Davis Road resulted in one woman being airlifted to a Columbus area hospital.

The driver of a white Nissan Rogue failed to yield for oncoming traffic while attempting to turn left onto South Davis Road, according to officer Phoungeune Phommaly with the LaGrange Police Department. A 53-year-old woman was the driver of the vehicle and suffered a head injury, according to Phommaly. She was airlifted.

The Nissan Rogue collided with a black Hyundai Sonata driven by a 43-year-old woman. There was only one person in each vehicle.

The driver of the Nissan Rogue was taken to WellStar West Georgia Medical Center.
