GAINESVILLE- A five-car accident on Browns Bridge injures three and closes it for a time.

The wreck happened around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday afternoon, snarling traffic on the busy connector between Hall and Forsyth counties.

According to Channel Two Action News, Three people were taken to Northeast Georgia Medical Center with what is believed to be non life-threatening injuries.

All lanes of traffic were shut down for a time on both sides of the bridge, with traffic being diverted on Ash Road.

The road was re-opened and all traffic was back to normal by around 7:30p.m. Wednesday evening.
