Wreck with entrapment shuts down Ga. 75 north of Helen

A vehicle down a 300-foot embankment with one person trapped Wednesday night shut down Ga. 75 between Helen and Hiawassee for three hours.

The wreck was reported just before 6:30 and after the injured individual was freed, the highway reopened about 9:30, said White County Public Safety spokesman Bryce Barrett.

The response was a joint effort between Helen Fire and White County Fire Services. Towns County Fire also was requested for mutual aid to provide additional manpower, Barrett said.

The Georgia State Patrol is investigating.
