    SANDWICH, Mass. - A two-car crash on Cape Cod sent one woman to the hospital via medical helicopter with a severe head injury, according to Sandwich Fire Department. 

    Massachusetts State Police told Boston 25 News a BMW 335i collided with a Toyota RAV4 just after 7 p.m. Monday on Route 6 Westbound, between exits 1 and 2. 

    When firefighters arrived, the driver of the RAV4, a 28-year-old woman from Hyannis, was lying unresponsive in the middle of the highway.

    The woman was taken by ambulance to the former Henry T. Wing School, where she was transferred to a Boston MedFlight helicopter and flown to Tufts Medical Center in Boston. 

    The driver of the second car, a 23-year-old woman from Dennisport, was treated at the scene and released. 

    State police closed Route 6 Westbound at exit 2 for a short time for the crash investigation and clean-up, but the highway is back open. 

    State police are investigating the cause of the crash.
