A motorist was injured today in a rollover crash on the Ortega Highway just west of Lake Elsinore.

A pickup truck overturned shortly after 11 a.m. on the eastbound side of the 74, in the area of the El Cariso campground, after the driver apparently failed to negotiate a curve, according to the California Highway Patrol. The

vehicle plowed through a chain-link fence and smashed into two poles before coming to rest on its roof along the side of the highway, according to reports from the scene.

Witnesses said the driver extricated himself from the pickup. He suffered unspecified injuries, and Riverside County Fire Department paramedics were sent to evaluate him.

The eastbound lane was blocked because of the crash, and CHP officers were conducting traffic breaks to keep vehicles moving through the area.
