An Oceano man suffered severe injuries in a single-vehicle rollover crash in San Miguel on Sunday afternoon.
The unnamed 41-year-old remained in the hospital Monday morning, but his condition was not available.
At about 3:50 p.m., the motorist was traveling south on Highway 101 in a 2007 Toyota Camry by the 10th Street off-ramp in San Miguel when he drifted into the center divider for unknown reasons, California Highway Patrol Officer John Ybarra said Monday.
The driver jerked the car back onto the highway and lost control, traveling across the southbound lanes before hitting the curb on the west shoulder and rolling down an embankment.

The man suffered several lacerations on his head, face and arms but did not sustain any significant blunt force trauma. He was taken to Twin Cities Community Hospital with “severe” injuries, Ybarra said.
No passengers were in the vehicle, and no other motorists were involved in the crash.
Ybarra said drugs and alcohol are not considered to have played a role, and the CHP’s investigation was concluded as of Monday morning.
