One man suffered a facial cut when his car overturned during a two-car wreck Saturday morning on northbound Highway 101 just north of the Atherton Avenue exit, sources said.
A fire engine and paramedic unit from the joined Battalion Chief Jeff Veliquette on the call at about 10:05 a.m. and found a sedan upside down in a drainage ditch just off the right shoulder of the highway.
Veliquette said the two men involved in the crash were out of their cars out when the crews arrived. The California Highway Patrol said a 21-year-old man from Sebastopol was taken to Novato Community Hospital, where he was treated and released for a cut on the chin.
The other man, who had a minor leg injury, was taken off the highway by a CHP officer.
The CHP said the 1995 Acura Integra was traveling at about 65 mph in the fast lane when the Sebastopol man allowed it to drift left and into the center divider. He then overcorrected and lost control, sending it across the slow lane and into the side of a Ford Taurus. The Integra hit a dirt embankment and overturned.
Intoxication is not suspected as a factor in this collision, the CHP said.
