Head-on collision in Tennessee injures many

Whenever two vehicles are heading toward each other, there is always the potential for an accident. However, when one vehicle enters a lane of oncoming traffic to pass another vehicle, the chance for a head-on collision may be multiplied. A recent head on collision on a Tennessee roadway proved how dangerous it can be to pass others under these circumstances.

The accident occurred as a 53-year-old man was driving a car on the highway. He was in the process of passing a vehicle that was in front of him. However, this occurred in a no passing zone. As a result, he collided with an SUV coming from the opposite direction.

The Trailblazer flipped over and witnesses rushed to the scene to help those involved. There were six people inside, ranging in ages from 18 to 71. The 53-year-old who apparently caused the accident died at the scene, and police say they believe alcohol was involved. The six people in the vehicle he hit were all transported to a hospital for medical treatment.

If alcohol is determined to be a factor, and it is confirmed that the man was passing in a no passing zone, the injured parties will likely have legal recourse to seek financial relief in a Tennessee civil court. They may be able to pursue a claim against the man's estate even though he died in the accident. A settlement from an accident of this nature may help victims deal with the financial effects of being involved in a head-on collision. Any monetary amount ultimately awarded may help with expenses such as medical bills and lost wages.
