Accident involving car and tractor-trailer on 316 at Hurricane Trail under investigation.

The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports that a motorist was trapped in a vehicle at the scene of a Thursday morning accident on Highway 316 near Hurricane Trail Road. 

The AJC initially reported that at least one person was killed. At approximately 8:15 a.m., @AJC tweeted an update:

"Update: Motorist under tractor-trailer still alive. Firefighters trying to cut him out of car."
