Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A man is in the hospital Friday, after a single car rollover accident on state Route 52.

The man was heading eastbound in a sedan when he flew off the road near Mast Boulevard about 11:15 a.m. He landed about 100 feet down an embankment. Rescuers had to hike down to his location and cut him out of the car.

The man was transported to a local hospital and authorities say his injuries do not appear to be life-threatening.

The cause of the accident is under investigation.

At the time of the accident, the CHP issued an advisory because traffic was backed up in the eastbound lanes near Mission Trails Regional Park.
