A car accident in Robertson County shut down all lanes of Highway 6 and sent a woman and her child to the hospital early Friday morning.

According to police, a woman drifted into oncoming traffic just before midnight Thursday and slammed into the semi near Abbott Road.

The outside, southbound lane remained closed until around 3 a.m. Friday as crews worked to remove the semi truck.

According to scanner traffic, a small child and mother were trapped in the car that collided with the 18-wheeler.

They were both taken to the hospital. The child is expected to be okay, but the mother's condition is unknown at this time.

The driver of the semi was not hurt.

The Department of Public Safety, Hearne Police, Hearne Fire Department, and Robertson County EMS all responded to the crash.
