Motorists headed back to Cedartown from the Rome area Thursday afternoon were delayed for almost an hour after a two-vehicle accident on Highway 27 near Booger Hollow Road in Floyd County.

According to Floyd County 911, a number of emergency units were sent to the wreck where two vehicles ran off the roadway and into the ditch on each side of the highway.

Only minor injuries were reported but southbound traffic ground to a halt and northbound lanes of  Highway 27 were reduced to one lane.

It is unclear at this time exactly what caused the wreck.

Traffic was back to normal by 5:30 p.m. Thursday.
