Staff reports

Two people were transported to Floyd Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries following a three-vehicle wreck on MLK Jr. Boulevard (Highway 278) at East Ellawood Avenue in Cedartown Monday morning.

According to the Georgia State Patrol, a tractor without a trailer attached and a Kia Sorento were traveling westbound.

The tractor was traveling too fast for the wet roadway and was following too close when it rear-ended the Kia, which was attempting to make a left turn.

After impact, the Kia traveled into the eastbound lane and hit a tractor-trailer head-on.

The wreck closed the highway in the area for much of the day.
