Chopper responds to evening crash

A 20-year-old man was cited by the California Highway Patrol on suspicion of drunken driving after a single-vehicle rollover accident Tuesday on Angie Court near Long Valley Road.

A medical helicopter responded to the accident on the gravel road, reported at 5:47 p.m.

A black Toyota 4-Runner had flipped onto its roof in some brush 5 feet from the roadway, according the CHP incident Web site.

At least one person had to be extricated from the 4-Runner before being transported by helicopter to a trauma center, a Calfire dispatcher said.

The 20-year old driver was cited after the crash and the 4-Runner was towed.
