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.
