Two people were taken to Floyd Medical Center after a crash at the intersection on Shorter Avenue and Alma Road around 7:20 p.m. Wednesday.

Traffic in both directions was detoured around the scene for over an hour.

According to Georgia State Trooper Jeremy Battle:

A 1985  Jeep, driven by a 16-year old juvenile, was westbound on Shorter Avenue when a black 2001 Honda Civic pulled out from the Little Caesars Pizza and struck the Jeep.

Battle said said the Jeep rolled twice and came to a rest in the east bound lane of the road.  He said the driver of the Jeep was taken to Floyd Medical Center, then transferred to Erlanger Medical Center in Chattanooga.  The trooper said a female passenger in the Honda was also taken to Floyd Medical Center but that the driver was not seriously injured. 

Battle was not able to release any names early Thursday afternoon. He said charges are pending against the driver of the Honda.
