Tennessee teen killed in head-on collision

Certain roads always prove to be more hazardous than others in many parts of the country. A recent Tennessee head-on collision seems to be highlighting issues with one road in particular. The accident resulted in the death of a 15-year-old boy.

The accident happened along a stretch of road that has been the scene of other accidents. There were three people in a Nissan heading down the road when the driver crossed the center line. As he did, he had a head-on collision with a pick-up truck. The teen in the passenger side of the Nissan was killed in the crash.

The other occupants of the Nissan needed medical attention, but were later released. The driver of the pick-up truck that was struck also needed to be transported to a nearby hospital. The police contend that speed was a factor in the car accident and this could be a major contributing factor to the boy's death.

Criminal charges are still pending against the driver believed to be responsible for the head-on collision. Despite the outcome of any criminal charges, if speed does prove to be a contributing factor in an accident that injures or kills another, that driver may be civilly liable for damages. The victim or the victim's family may be able to pursue a civil suit in Tennessee and garner monetary damages if that suit proves to be successful. Monetary damages from a civil suit may help victims and families contend with the financial aftermath of a car accident.
