"An accident just south of Devil's Slide tunnel quickly snarled traffic in both directions Sunday afternoon at 12:49 p.m.  A Chevrolet pick-up truck flipped over in the two-vehicle accident that also involved a Toyota Celica, said Officer Daniel Russo of California Highway Patrol. The Toyota Celica was moderately damaged, Russo said.

One driver with no obvious injury complained of general pain and was transported to the hospital by North County Fire Authority, Russo said. "When you experience a rollover, we like to make sure you are checked out by a doctor," Russo said.  The road was closed in both directions until the accident was cleared at 2:22 p.m."
