An SUV crashed into a home on Ashley Road Tuesday afternoon, sending one victim to a hospital via Mercy Air, Cal Fire Battalion Chief Saul Villagomez said.

According to Villagomez, a witness said they saw the silver SUV veer off the road suddenly.

California High Patrol Officer Brian Kattke, though, said no witnesses were present.

The officer said the 2006 Dodge Durango was traveling southbound on Ashley Road when it veered off and crashed into the house at the 1300 block of Ashley Road.

"Preliminary, we think she may have had a seizure," Kattke said, noting the 46-year-old victim had a history of them.

Kattke said no one was in the house when the crash occurred and the owner of the home had been notified.

A neighbor to the home said the noise of the crash was so loud, she thought it came from Camp Pendleton.

Jared Andrade, an FAE paramedic at Ramona Fire Department/Cal Fire Station 80, said the patient was in "serious" condition and being flown to Palomar. She was unconscious at the scene but was "coming back around" once she was on the air flight, he said.

Kattke said the victim was wearing her seatbelt and alcohol is not suspected.
