Rome Police and the Rome/Floyd Fire Department responded to the scene to find two trucks and also reported possibly two people with injuries. The two patients were checked out by Floyd EMS on the scene.
The eastbound traffic lanes of Shorter Avenue at Burnett Ferry were temporarily affected, as they were blocked by the Police and the Fire Department so that the wreck debris and vehicles could be removed from the scene.
