Two weeks after crash on graduation day, Georgia high school senior still in ICU


A GoFundMe campaign has been set up to raise donations for Vansh Patel, a recent graduate of Deerfield Windsor School in Albany, GA, who is currently in the ICU following a severe car accident. The crash, which happened on the night of his high school graduation, also resulted in the tragic death of another graduate, David Mullins, who was the driver of the vehicle.

Vansh has been in the intensive care unit for nearly two weeks at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta, GA. He was airlifted to the hospital on May 20th after being ejected from the vehicle and sustaining multiple injuries. Vansh has already undergone several surgeries, with more planned. His injuries will require extensive rehabilitation and ongoing physical therapy.

Rishi Patel, Vansh’s brother, shared that the funds raised on the GoFundMe page will be used to cover hospital bills and the continuing treatments Vansh will need after his discharge.

Describing his brother, Rishi said, “Vansh is outgoing, motivated, hardworking, confident, bright, and determined. He is a wonderful brother and a caring son to our parents, Piyush and Alka. Vansh is known as the ‘entertainer’ of the family and shares a special bond with each of us. He is a compassionate and encouraging friend, always looking to uplift others.”

During his time at Deerfield Windsor School, Vansh was very active in athletics and extracurricular activities. Despite his current challenges, Vansh remains hopeful for the future. He plans to attend the Georgia Institute of Technology and pursue a career in the dental or medical field. In his personal life, he enjoys learning about cars, clay target shooting, weightlifting, listening to music, playing sports, and spending time with his close friends and family.
