Rockmart Highway was closed for about two hours Tuesday following a two-vehicle wreck near Craton Road.

According to Floyd County Police:

A northbound Hyundai Sonata crossed the center line and sideswiped a southbound Dodge Ram. The Dodge then traveled off the west side of the road, coming to rest after about 150 feet.

The driver of the Sonata, 20-year-old Keshaun Stocks of Rome, and the driver of the Ram, 73-year-old Gary Harris of Rockmart were both extricated from their vehicles. 30-year-old Brandon Harris, also of Rockmart, was a passenger in the pickup.

All three were conscious and alert at the scene and were transported to Atrium Health Floyd for treatment.

Stocks is facing charges of failure to maintain a lane and driving while using an electronic device.

The wreck occurred just after 5:30 p.m.
