Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A 62-year-old driver was seriously injured Saturday when he tried to make a U-turn on a Bay Ho roadway and collided with a minivan, police said.

The man pulled the parked 2000 Toyota Corolla away from the north side curb on Jemez Drive near Moraga Drive shortly before 4 p.m., San Diego police Officer David Stafford said.

As he started to make the U-turn, he was struck by a westbound 1995 Nissan Quest, Stafford said.

The Toyota's driver suffered a punctured lung and a fractured rib in the crash, and was taken to a hospital, Stafford said. His injuries were not considered to be life-threatening.

The Nissan's 44-year-old driver was not injured. Stafford said alcohol was not a cause of the crash.
