A fallen tree on GA Hwy 85 at GA 315 left two vehicles and one person entrapped. 

When the Ellerslie Volunteer Fire Rescue arrived on scene, they found a vehicle in the roadway going north with a tree on top of the hood and part of the driver’s compartment. Another vehicle was off the roadway, having just driven directly through the trees. 

The driver with the tree on top was able to get themselves out. 

Rescue says there were no other injuries reported for either vehicle. 

Firefighters worked to clear two very large trees and thick vines. 

Traffic was blocked at GA 315 and routed to Warm Springs Road to exit at the Fire Station Intersection. 

The roadway is still currently blocked but wreckers are on scene as of 10:10.
