Five people died in a multicar wreck that closed northbound Interstate 75 north of Atlanta for two hours as the Friday homeward rush began.

Two of the dead were in one car and three in a second vehicle, Cherokee County Sheriff Roger Garrison said. A 10-year-old boy was in fair condition with multiple fractures.

Witnesses said a southbound car crossed the median barrier, rolled in the air and landed upside down on a northbound vehicle.
