SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — A crash on the connector ramp between northbound state Route 67 and westbound SR-52 in Santee left passengers trapped in an overturned SUV Tuesday morning, according to California Highway Patrol.

The transition ramp was shut down as crews worked to free trapped passengers. 

CHP reported that two passengers were transported to Sharp Memorial Hospital with minor injuries. It was not clear if there were other individuals involved in the crash.

The right wall of the transition ramp was corroded due to the accident and a crew was sent to inspect the damage.
