Tennessee drivers are required to follow a multitude of traffic laws. There are laws regarding how fast one can drive, how one should navigate lane changes and even when one should come to a complete stop. These laws were put in place in an effort to protect people. Even before learning to drive, one quickly becomes aware that vehicles have a specific lane in which they must travel and a specific side of the road on which they must stay. Any time a driver violates these traffic laws, there is the possibility for disaster and car accidents are likely to occur.
Recently, the driver of a white Jeep crossed the center line into oncoming traffic. This caused a front-end collision with a vehicle in that oncoming traffic. Both drivers and the passenger in the front seat of the Honda that was hit were killed upon impact. The passenger in the Jeep survived the accident.
In this particular case, the accident is still being investigated. Police are still looking into whether alcohol or drugs were a factor in the accident. In addition, complete details regarding exactly what happened have yet to be released.
Many Tennessee car accidents leave innocent victims with a hefty burden. In a case such as the one above, the victims’ families are the ones who are left to pick up the pieces. In a situation such as this, the families of those killed in the accident may decide to pursue legal action against the estate of the driver who caused the accident. Similarly, the seriously injured passenger has the right to make a claim for personal injuries.
