A young female driver escaped serious injury after her nearly new SUV overturned on a Point Loma hill.
The vehicle, a Jeep Sahara, first struck a parked SUV before rolling onto its side Dec. 4 at about 3:45 p.m. in the steep 4500 block of Point Loma Avenue.
The driver was able to extricate herself from the vehicle before first responders arrived. A scraped elbow was apparently her only injury.
The Jeep's driver was traveling east (uphill) when she struck the SUV in front of 4541 Point Loma Ave. causing damage and a flat tire to the left rear side. The Jeep then rolled onto the driver's side with wheels facing downhill.
San Diego police blocked traffic for over an hour before a tow truck driver, using chains, was able to right the vehicle and remove it.
