Eleven people injured Saturday afternoon were transported to a nearby hospital after a two vehicle rollover accident on Interstate 8 east of Imperial Hwy, according to the California Highway Patrol.
Officers say a female driver and a van with 10 patients from a nursing home collided with each other east bound I-8. They say both vehicles went into a dirt center divide and overturned into the 30 foot embankment. According to CHP, one person was pinned and everyone involved in the collision had injuries from moderate to severe.
CHP says four people were air lifted by separate helicopters to San Diego Trauma Center and seven were transported to El Centro Regional Medical Center.
