UPDATE: A three-vehicle accident that sent one person to the hospital blocked San Vicente Road in both directions east of Wildcat Canyon Road about 12:45 p.m. Monday.

The road was reopened just before 2 p.m.

According to California Highway Patrol Officer Dan Matthews, the driver of a green Dodge pickup truck was eastbound and lost control,  crossing over the double yellow line and clipping a black Nissan Altima in the westbound lane.

The 20-year-old female driver of the Altima complained of chest pain and was transported to Palomar Medical Center, said Matthews.

Traveling behind the green truck was a gray Toyota Tundra pickup truck, the CHP officer said.

The driver of that truck, 22-year-old Jose Ramirez, said he saw the Altima coming toward him and swerved to the right. His truck ended on the south side of the road,

“I saw the car spin out a couple of times,” he said.

The green truck came to rest a little farther east on the north side of San Vicente Road, wedged above a couple of boulders.

The drivers of each of the vehicle were the sole occupants, said Matthews.

    I think it’ll be better if they keep it closed.
