Tennessee car wreck kills driver, injures others

Whenever there are cars on the road coming toward each other or pulling out from intersections, there is a general sense of trust that each party is fully aware of their actions and abiding by the rules of the road. However, that simply isn't always the case, and a car wreck resulting from someone else's inattentiveness can actually occur at any moment. A recent Tennessee car wreck led to one driver being fatally injured and other people sustaining injuries.

The accident occurred as a 73-year-old woman was driving a van down the road. For some unknown reason, she pulled out of one road and directly into the path of an oncoming Chevy Cruze. The collision led to the both vehicles ending up in the median of the roadway.

The van driver was killed at the scene. The driver of the Chevy she hit, a 47-year-old woman, was flown to a medical facility for immediate care. In the back of her car were two teenagers, an 18-year-old and a 16-year-old. They needed medical attention also. There is still an ongoing investigation into the deadly accident.

An investigation may lead authorities to pinpoint a reason for the crash, namely why the woman pulled out in front of the other vehicle. Even though the driver who presumably caused the crash died at the scene, those who were injured may still be able to seek damages from her estate if they pursue a case in a Tennessee civil court. A civil complaint related to the car wreck may help the injured parties recoup monetary damages, such as medical bills, lost wages or other losses they incurred as a result of the accident.
