Atlanta firefighters and police responded to a car wreck on I-75 North that had one person entrapped for nearly 30 minutes, Atlanta police confirmed.

The second vehicle, an SUV, was carrying four people, including the person that needed extrication, police said. Two people were taken to an area hospital with minor lacerations and bruises.
