Tallulah Falls, GA – Three-Vehicle Collision with Serious Injuries on GA-15

Tallulah Falls, GA (April 14, 2022) – Serious injuries were reported in a three-vehicle collision that took place in Tallulah Falls on Thursday afternoon, April 14. 

According to local officials, the accident happened on GA-15 right past the Tallulah Falls dam. Police confirmed that 21-year-old Edmanuel Mendoza was traveling south on the highway in the left lane in a Chevrolet Camaro. The vehicle collided with a Dodge Caravan being driven by a 17-year-old with three 17-year-old passengers inside the vehicle. The Caravan collided with a Chevy Tahoe driven by 71-year-old Robert Guess and his passenger, Karen Guess. 

Paramedics, fire crews, and several other local responders were dispatched to the scene to help those in need. Mendoza was airlifted to the hospital with critical injuries. The 17-year-old driver, the passengers in the Caravan, and the individuals inside the Tahoe were all injured and hospitalized. The victims are expected to make full recoveries. 

Mendoza has since been charged with DUI and several other related charges. The roadway was blocked in the area for some time. 

No further details have been released but the investigation continues. Police will update with more information as it is available. 

Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.
