A Mercer University student remains in jail after a two-car accident left 23-year-old Gerald Butler in critical condition.

The Bibb County Sheriff’s office says David Michael Teasley, 24, was driving a Ford Sport Track when his vehicle collided with Butler’s Ford Taurus.

The collision happened at the intersection of Forsyth Road and Tucker Road in the early morning hours of Nov. 2.

Teasley sustained no injuries and was transported to the Bibb County Law Enforcement Center. Butler’s condition has not been released yet.

Teasley is being charged with DUI and Serious Injury by a Motor Vehicle.

Bond was posted for $12,520, however as of 11 a.m. Thursday, Teasley remained in jail.

The incident is still under investigation. Anyone with any information is urged to call the Bibb County Sheriff Department’s office at 478-751-7500.

An online fundraiser has been setup to offset Butler’s medical expenses.
