One male patient involved in a single-vehicle accident on San Vicente Road was airlifted to Palomar Medical Center this morning, Cal Fire Capt. Robert Ramirez with the Ramona Fire Department

reported.

Emergency crews found the male, 22, unconscious and trapped in the driver’s seat of a full-sized Chevrolet pickup. It took about 40 minutes to extricate the patient because of the damage and position of the vehicle, said Ramirez.

The accident occurred about one mile west of Wildcat Canyon Road at 5:13 a.m., noted Ramirez, who said the patient, a resident of San Diego Country Estates, suffered serious injuries. The vehicle was westbound just coming out of a curve when it appeared that it hit a tree and landed on its roof, said Ramirez.

Paramedics transported the patient to Ramona Fire Station 80 at 829 San Vicente Road, where Mercy 6
