A crash involving a truck pulling a utility trailer and a car on Friday morning caused northbound traffic delays on Interstate 575.

Motorists traveling north on Interstate 575 faced traffic delays Friday morning because of a crash just north of the Ga. Highway 92 bridge.

Dispatchers with Cherokee County 911 received multiple calls regarding the accident involving a white F-250 Ford truck that was hauling an enclosed trailer and a white Nissan Infinity automobile.

Cherokee County firefighters responded to the scene to find the trailer had come loose from the truck and was lying on its side and the Infinity was along the tree line further north.

Two men in the truck were complaining of leg pain, however, they refused transport to an area hospital. The 33-year-old driver of the Infinity suffered no injuries. After the ambulance left the scene, they were called back later to transport one of the injured men to the hospital.

Traffic on all lanes of I-575 northbound was backed up to near the Bells Ferry Road exit. The cause of the accident is being investigated.
