A two-vehicle traffic collision with minor injuries just north of Saunders Meadow Road on Highway 243 has created one-lane traffic this afternoon. Gabriel Michelle Roberts, 52, of Hemet, was traveling northbound in a Subaru Outback, according to CHP Officer Ron Esparza, when she veered into the southbound lane. Michael Curtis Loften, 18, of Mountain Center, was traveling southbound in a Pontiac Grand Prix and he swerved into Roberts' lane to avoided a collision. She then swerved back into her lane where the vehicles collided. Both drivers refused treatment for their injuries.
