Three men were injured, one seriously, in a head-on crash in Rancho Santa Fe, North County officials say.
A Ford F150 and another pickup truck collided in the 5800 block of El Montevideo just after 5 p.m.
One of the drivers was trapped in his truck, so firefighters had to extricate him so they could treat his major, life-threatening injuries.
Rescue crews called in a helicopter to airlift the patient.
However, no medical choppers were available, so San Diego Fire-Rescue's helicopter had to fly up to Rancho Santa Fe to pick up the patient.
He was taken to Scripps La Jolla Hospital. One other patient was taken to the same hospital by ambulance.
A third man was treated at the scene.
