The driver of the Excursion, Payton Riley Caldwell, 19, of Crawford, and two other teenage passengers, were all transported to Piedmont Athens Regional with non-life-threatening injuries.

The driver of the Accord, Tatsianna Nicole Peeples, 32, of Royston, was airlifted to Northeast Georgia Medical Center with life-threatening injuries.
