Two accidents on Friday morning resulted in injuries, according to the Ramona Fire Department/Cal Fire.

At 9:50 a.m., the car a 24-year-old female from Ramona was driving in spun around and hit a tree as she was southbound on

Third Street near Old Julian Highway, said California Highway Patrol Officer Brian Kattke, adding that she appeared to be traveling too fast for the wet roadway.

Kattke said she complained of pain to her back and chest and had minor bumps and bruises.

CHP Officer Jeff Christy said the Ramona Fire Department was transporting her to Station 80 where Mercy Air was scheduled to fly her to Palomar Medical Center. Christy said her injuries did not appear to be life threatening and she was wearing her seatbelt.

Another accident occurred around 10:30 a.m. on Montecito Road when the driver of a Ford F 250 pickup truck attempted to pass a northbound Toyota Prius as the driver of the Prius was preparing to make a left turn into the parking lot of school district property near Alice Street and hit the Prius, said Firefighter Apparatus
