Tennessee chain reaction car wreck injures several, kills driver

Any time there is a multi-vehicle car accident, it can be difficult to figure out exactly what happened and the potential for injuries can be greatly increased. Despite the severity of a recent Tennessee car wreck, there was only one fatality. However, several innocent drivers affected by the crash were injured.

The Sunday afternoon accident reportedly occurred when a Lincoln Town Car crossed over into the opposite lane. The car struck a pick-up truck that was hauling a trailer behind it. The collision sent the truck across the lanes of traffic and onto the shoulder of the road. Another driver swerved to avoid the crash as it happened in front of them. Another driver behind that vehicle hit them and then rolled several times.

The 27-year-old woman who was driving the Lincoln that set off the chain reaction crash died at the scene. All three drivers who were in the other vehicles were transported for medical treatment due to injuries they suffered. Investigators are trying to determine why the Lincoln driver went into the other lane to begin with.

While the driver who reportedly caused this accident has died, the injured parties who were in the other vehicles may still have a means of pursuing damages. If they file a claim in a Tennessee civil court, they may be able to garner damages from the estate of the woman who caused the car wreck. Any damages won could help those affected deal with medical bills or lost wages resulting from their recovery time from this accident.
