One person was severely injured after a single-vehicle rollover crash Tuesday Nov. 14.

The incident was reported at approximately 3:30 a.m. on Borrego Salton Seaway, a rural, winding portion of San Diego County’s S-22 between Borrego Springs and Salton City, California Highway Patrol Officer Tommy Doerr said.

The name of the driver has not been released.

Crews reported the driver of the vehicle, a Honda, was headed toward Borrego Springs.

The drivers of a semitrailer and another vehicle drove up to the car, where they found the driver, according to a CHP incident log.

Emergency crews from Cal Fire San Diego responded and extricated the driver a little after 4:00 a.m., and paramedics took the victim to an airfield in the area to be airlifted to a hospital, Doerr said.

The cause of the crash has not yet been determined.
