Unlicensed driver causes three-vehicle accident at SR-78 and Third Street

A Ramona male in his early 20s was cited for driving without a license after causing a three-vehicle accident at State Route 78 and Third Street at 3:37 p.m. Thursday, said California Highway Patrol.

The male was traveling in a silver Honda car west on SR-78 and thought he had enough time to make a left turn onto Third Street as an eastbound gold Toyota SUV was approaching, said CHP Officer Jeff Christy. The SUV collided with the Honda and that pushed the car against a white Chevrolet Silverado truck that was stopped on Third Street with the driver waiting to make a right turn, said Christy.

Seven people were involved in the accident — all wearing seatbelts — and the only injury was to the unlicensed driver who was treated at the site for a laceration above his eye, said the officer. Alcohol is not suspected.

    The unlicensed should do to jail for no license

    Jail time seems a bit excessive. No one was killed. He wasn't intoxicated. How is anyone served by that punishment?

    I was the driver of the gold SUV. Luckily I was driving a big safe car that protected myself and my three young daughters. I do carry a valid California drivers license and I am insured. He was driving without a drivers license and possibly no insurance. I feel he should have been taken to jail he broke the law and was driving recklessly putting my family in danger and now this whole incident is taking my time dealing with this mess. He should be held accountable.
