A 17-year-old male was airlifted to Palomar Hospital Sunday night after the vehicle he was traveling in flipped when it hit a boulder. The teen is currently in critical condition.
The accident occurred on Vista Vicente Drive, off San Vicente Road, according to the Ramona Fire Department. The driver of the vehicle is reported to have swerved to avoid hitting a rabbit in the road. The vehicle slammed head-on into a boulder and the back of the car flipped over the front, so that the vehicle landed on its roof.
When paramedics arrived at the scene, the 17-year-old passenger was losing consciousness after sustaining a head injury. The driver also sustained minor injuries and was released to his parents at the scene. The passenger, who had been wearing his seat belt, was pulled out of the vehicle by a pedestrian.
Names have not been released due to the age of the young men. This is the second rollover accident in the Country Estates area in just over two weeks.
