PARADISE, Calif. - California Highway Patrol responded to a minor accident at around 12:25 p.m. in Paradise when an RV drove the wrong way on Skyway Crossroad Road, forcing another car off of the road. 

The driver told CHP officers that he pulled over going westbound on Skyway Crossroad Road. He forgot that the road only had one-way of traffic and started driving eastbound on the road, against traffic. 

His driving caused a Honda Accord to veer off of the road, and it crashed into a large rock. 

A female driver and passenger sustained minor injuries, but did not go to the hospital. 

The driver of the RV was able to leave the scene. No arrests were made. 

The incident stopped traffic on Skyway Crossroad Road for about 10 minutes.
