Tennessee police seek man who caused pedestrian vs. car accident

Crossing the road should be a safe endeavor for anyone. However, there are incidents when simply crossing the road can literally be like risking your own life. Recently in Tennessee, a man and woman were crossing the road when a car accident left them injured.

The two people were in the process of heading from one bar to another across the road when a car came along. The car was heading east at the time it hit the couple and then continued on that path down the road. The car fled the scene afterwards.

Police are actively searching for the driver of that car. They report that it is a Jaguar and is either light blue or gray. Police also said there may be damage to the windshield. The two people hit were transported to a nearby hospital for treatment of their injuries.

If and when police do locate the driver who caused this pedestrian vs. car accident, that individual may face criminal consequences for the incident. However, the two people injured in the car accident may have cause to file a civil court lawsuit regardless of the outcome of any criminal investigation. In a Tennessee civil court, the couple may attempt to recover monetary damages that could help them deal with the aftermath of being hit while crossing the road. They may well rack up medical bills and suffer from lost wages while they focus on recovering from their injuries, and an award of damages can help offset the negative financial consequences of being involved in a car accident.
