Just before 9 a.m. on Monday, November 8, 2010, units from Lakeside Fire District where dispatched to a vehicle accident on highway 67  near Vigilante Road.  Battalion 1 and Engine 1 from the Riverview station (fs1) where first on scene.  The incident was located at the top of the grade coming into Lakeside.  Firefighters found an SUV that had spun around, hit the dirt bank on the right side of the road, and rolled onto its roof.  Luckily, the driver was wearing his seat belt and was able to get out of the car and walk away with minor injuries.  This is already a dangerous stretch of road and when it rains, drivers need to be extra careful.

Other units that were dispatched to assist were Rescue 3 from the Lakeside Fire District and Medic 6 from El Cajon Fire Dept.
