Tennessee car accidents increase with speed and complacency

Many Tennessee roadways consist of curves and turns that require a decrease of speed and the use of caution. Some motorists become complacent when traveling familiar routes, which can lead to an increase in speed and an increased likelihood of car accidents. A local woman may be facing criminal charges after killing one and injuring another in head-on collision.

The incident occurred around 8:30 p.m. The woman was driving a minivan when she swerved into oncoming traffic while navigating a curve in the road and struck another vehicle. The force of the impact caused the car, driven by a 26-year-old male, to turn and strike another vehicle.

Both drivers of the impacted cars were transported to a local hospital. The man who was hit head-on succumbed to injuries once at the hospital. The other driver, another 26-year-old male, was treated for injuries that were not thought to be life-threatening. The 37-year-old woman was taken to the hospital for a blood test to check for the presence of illegal substances or alcohol. Police are continuing their investigation to determine the exact cause of the crash.

Car accidents are often scary and head-on collisions can be deadly. Tennessee residents who have been injured or surviving family members who have lost a loved one due to the negligence of another may wish to file a personal injury or wrongful death claim in a civil court. Monies received from a successful claim can help with incurred medical costs, lost wages and/or final expenses. A skilled personal injury attorney can help families to understand their rights under Tennessee law.
