Chickamauga, GA – Update: Head-on Collision with Injuries on Red Belt Rd 

Chickamauga, GA (May 16, 2022) – Injuries were reported in multiple victims following a head-on collision that took place around 7:26 p.m. on Saturday evening, May 14. The victims have since been identified by police. 

According to officials with the Georgia State Patrol, the accident happened on Red Belt Road around a curve in the road at Gordon Mill. Police confirmed that 28-year-old Tyler Chambers was traveling west in his Jeep Patriot and going around a curve in the road. At the same time, 38-year-old Kristen Massengale was traveling east and negotiating a curve. Chambers’ vehicle began to slide on the wet road and traveled into the other lane, striking the other vehicle. Both vehicles went in different directions after they collided. 

Paramedics, fire crews, and several other responders were called to the scene to help those in need. Both Chambers and Massengale were seriously injured and rushed to local hospitals for treatment. A passenger inside the Jeep, identified as 29-year-old Lyndsey Chambers, was also injured and taken to the hospital. 

The roadway was blocked in the area for a period of time as police worked to clear the scene. 

Chambers was cited for his role in the accident. He received citations for traveling too fast for road conditions and failing to maintain his lane. 

Our thoughts are with the three victims in hopes of a full recovery for all.
