Last updated 2/17/2021 at 1pm

One person was seriously hurt in a crash on South Mission Road in Fallbrook Saturday morning, Feb. 13.

A full-size van and a minivan struck each other in a partial head-on collision a little before 9:15 a.m. on South Mission Road at Green Canyon Road, according to North County Fire Protection District spokesperson Capt. John Choi.

One of the vehicles sustained "major damage" in the crash, and one of the drivers had to be taken to Palomar Medical Center in Escondido with injuries that were described as "not life threatening, but significant," Choi said.

The other driver involved in the crash suffered minor injuries and declined medical attention.

South Mission Road was blocked in both directions for about 30 minutes after the crash, Choi said.
