A Milton man was hospitalized earlier today after a head-on collision on Route 7’s Lake Arrowhead causeway, Milton police said in a news release tonight.

Taylor Smith, 26, was traveling north when he crossed the centerline and struck St. Albans resident Bruce Hill, 40, in the southbound lane, the release states.

Both drivers were trapped in their vehicles until rescue crews extracted them and transported them to the University of Vermont Medical Center, police said.

Smith’s 2011 Kia Sportage and Hill’s 2011 GMC pickup sustained “significant damage,” the release said.
