SALTON CITY — A 63-year-old Salton City man suffered head injuries described by the California Highway Patrol as major when his vehicle struck a dirt berm and rolled, authorities said Friday.
Kenneth A. Andrews was flown to Desert Regional Medical Center following the incident 4:55 p.m. Thursday, Highway Patrol Officer Jose Serrano said.
But Andrews’ sharp turn to the left caused him to skid in his 2010 Dodge Avenger into a driveway and continue onto to an empty dirt lot, where the midsize sedan struck a berm and subsequently rolled over, Serrano said.
The crash is under investigation.
