Two drivers were hospitalized with serious injuries after a head-on accident on Route 146 early this afternoon, state police said.

Daniel Stack, 25, of Saratoga, was driving his 2009 Honda Civic west on Route 146, near Nott Road, about 12:15 p.m. when he crossed the double-solid line and struck a 2007 Toyota Camry driven by Ertugrul Berkcan, 63 of Clifton Park, troopers said.

Both drivers had to be extricated from their vehicles by emergency responders and flown by helicopter to Albany Medical Center. State police described their injuries as serious.

Route 146 was closed between Nott Road and Blue Barns Road for about four hours, reopening around 4:30.

The accident remains under investigation, but charges are expected, state police said.
