A motorist escaped serious injury Wednesday when a car plowed into the center divider on Interstate 10 in the Banning Pass near Whitewater.

The solo vehicle crash was reported about 11 a.m. on the eastbound I-10, west of the Haugen-Lehmann Way off-ramp, according to the California Highway Patrol.

A Honda Civic struck the center divider for unknown reasons before coming to a stop in the roadway facing the opposite direction. The driver suffered injuries described as minor, but it was unclear whether the person was taken to a hospital.
