Tennessee woman faces charges in car wreck

It is not unusual to see someone alongside the road being ticketed or even arrested on a Saturday night. Once safely past the scene, most people simply drive along without a second thought to what may be taking place. However, being near the scene recently when a Tennessee woman was arrested turned out to be the most dangerous place to be that night. The woman ended up allegedly causing a deadly car wreck because of her actions during an arrest attempt.

The woman somehow managed to steal the police car from the officer trying to arrest her in a Dollar General store parking lot. She then crashed the car into another vehicle. A man in that vehicle died from the impact.

There were several people inside of the vehicle that was hit. Four were injured and the man killed was 55 years old. The 49-year-old woman who caused the collision with the stolen police cruiser faces a long list of serious charges, including vehicular homicide. She was held on $402,500 bond after the incident.

While the criminal charges are lingering against the woman, the family of the man who was killed in the car wreck may be able to pursue a civil complaint in a Tennessee civil court. They may be able to pursue wrongful death damages and garner a monetary judgment. Any money they may be awarded could go a long way in helping the family handle any expense they may have incurred as a result of this deadly car wreck.
