Authorities said a Lambert High School senior remained hospitalized Tuesday, five days after she was injured in a two-vehicle wreck on Windermere Parkway.

Forsyth County Sheriff's Capt. Tim House said Paige Allison Wheeler, 18, was flown to Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta on Thursday night.

According to House, Wheeler was a passenger in a 1999 Jeep Wrangler that was struck on the side by a 2004 BMW.

He declined to release the name of the Jeep's driver, citing his age, but said the teen was not taken to a hospital for
treatment.

Officials have said the driver is a sophomore at Lambert.

No charges have been filed in connection with the wreck, though House did not rule out that possibility.

The collision occurred about 9 p.m. at Windermere Parkway and Melody Mizer Lane.

House said the Jeep was traveling east on Windermere when the driver turned left onto Melody Mizer and into the path of a westbound BMW.

The BMW was driven by 45-year-old Halyna Ivaskiv of Alpharetta, who House said was in stable condition at North Fulton Hospital.

House said alcohol does not appear to have been a factor in the collision.

News of the wreck spread quickly through the tight-knit Lambert community.

Students gathered Friday at the school's flagpole to pray for the two students.

Principal Gary Davison has encouraged “everyone to send your thoughts and prayers" to the teens and their families.
