COMMERCE - Georgia State Patrol Post 6 in Gainesville is investigating a serious early-morning wreck in Banks County.

Two people were trapped as a result of the crash on Georgia Highway 63 about two miles from I-85 in rural Banks County.

The wreck, paged at 6:40 a.m., was located at Georgia 63 and Bennett Road.

A Franklin County ambulance was called, as well as all three Banks County ambulances, officials report.

Medical helicopters from both Gainesville and Anderson, S.C., were requested, but were unable to fly due to fog.

The first trapped victim was freed around 7:35 a.m., with the second freed around 7:50.

Victims were taken by ambulance to Athens Regional Medical Center and Northeast Georgia Medical Center.
