Traffic snarled for more than an hour Thursday night in both directions on Dawsonville Highway after a two-car wreck in front of Cheddar's.

Gainesville Fire Department spokesman Keith Smith said two people were transported to Northeast Georgia Medical Center, one emergency and one non-emergency. Smith said the person who received an emergency transport had been trapped in a vehicle.

Drivers reported problems on Ga. 53 as far away from Cheddar's as Washington Street near downtown and the bridges spanning Lake Lanier north of the wreck.
