UNDATED - No one was seriously hurt in a two-vehicle wreck that shut down Georgia Highway 384 (Duncan Bridge Road) just after noon Sunday.
Sgt. Anthony Coleman of Georgia State Patrol Post 7 in Toccoa said a tire blowout resulted in the crash.
A Honda Civic was traveling west when its right rear tire blew out.
The car crossed over and struck the concrete bridge with its front, then rotated out in front of a Toyota Tacoma pickup truck, striking the truck's front, Coleman said.
Coleman said a 61-year-old female was trapped in the backseat of the car until the door was removed. There also was a 4-year-old child on the opposite side of the backseat, Coleman added.
The occupants of the Honda all were taken to Northeast Georgia Medical Center, he said.
Coleman said the truck's occupants complained of injury but were not taken for treatment.
The driver of the Honda was cited by GSP for failure to maintain lane.
