California Highway Patrol reported a single-car accident on Highway 67 Friday afternoon near Mt. Woodson Road that may have involved a DUI.

A Highway Patrol unit was en route to the scene at 2:20 p.m., according to CHP, and the car had partially flipped over.

According to dispatch, only one vehicle was involved and the northbound lane of Highway 67 was blocked for an unknown amount of time.

Early reports indicate a possible DUI, although they have yet to be confirmed by authorities.

Ramona Fire Department/Cal Fire Station 82, which was first to respond to the accident, said there was only one person involved, a male in his mid-40s. The victim was able to get out of the car himself and was free from the wreck when units arrived on scene.

Reserve Firefighter Cody Lambert told Patch the car involved was a four-door gray sedan.

Ramona resident Martha Staab saw the whole thing happen, telling Patch that she witnessed the car flip as she was driving west and it was coming up eastbound.

"The car started to drift to the right and then I saw it flip in the air and land on its top," Staab said in an email. "I slowed down and there were people pulling over to help...It happened very quickly. I couldn’t see what the driver was doing beforehand."

CHP reported the victim being transported to a Palomar, with Lambert saying he suffered minor injuries.

Traffic was being backed up along Highway 67 coming into town. Some residents posted on Ramona Patch's Facebook of traffic accumulation.

CHP issued a traffic advisory around 3 p.m. It was canceled at 3:25 p.m.
