Juvenile killed in motor vehicle accident in Tennessee

Although it becomes, at times, second nature, drivers are constantly assessing their situations and making decisions that allow them to respond appropriately. Distractions in the vehicle that cause a driver to overlook the need to make an adjustment often have serious consequences. In fact, police in Tennessee say that a 16-year-old female recently lost her life in a motor vehicle accident.

Life in Tennessee can become a blur when one is caught up in the commotions of the day. Running errands, work and catching up with all the other things on one's to-do list can be overwhelming. Getting behind the wheel while stressed, distracted or tired can have serious consequences both for the driver and for those who happen to be in or near the road in the same vicinity. Car accidents caused by fatigued drivers can have devastating consequences, as one recent crash underscored.

One Tennessee inmate was found dead a state prison and the family has filed a wrongful death claim.
