NORTH FORSYTH — One driver was taken into custody and a second to a hospital following a two-vehicle wreck Tuesday morning that reduced traffic on Ga. 400 to one lane. 

The collision, which occurred about 10 a.m. at Martin Road, involved a Ford F-150 pickup truck and a Nissan passenger car. One of the vehicles reportedly went through a red light, though authorities are still trying to determine which one.

The broadside impact left the pickup on its side in the middle of the intersection. It took firefighters about 20 minutes to cut the roof off the pickup so they could free the trapped driver.

The driver of the pickup was taken to Northeast Georgia Medical Center in Gainesville with moderate injuries, according to Forsyth County Fire Division Chief Jason Shivers.

According to Shivers, the other driver declined to be taken to the hospital. 

After being given a field sobriety test by a Georgia State Patrol trooper, the driver of the Nissan was taken into custody on suspicion of driving under the influence.
