Tennessee student killed in truck accident

Crossing any street can be a precarious venture. Whenever someone crosses in a safe area and drivers around them abide by the rules of the road, there is rarely an incident or problem. However, a truck accident in Tennessee recently highlighted the fact that anyone can become a victim and suffer dire consequences when crossing a road.

A 28-year-old student was crossing the road just before 9 a.m. He was wheelchair bound. As he crossed, a dump truck turned right from one road to another. The student was struck by the dump truck.

The young man was transported to a nearby medical facility for treatment. However, he was later pronounced dead. Officials from Middle Tennessee State University stated the student was left wheelchair-bound after being involved in a car accident previously and had returned to the university afterwards. The truck driver is a 32-year-old man. There is currently an investigation into the accident.

Anytime someone is involved in a deadly truck accident, an investigation typically attempts to get to the bottom of exactly what happened or to establish whether and whether any laws were broken. In Tennessee, a victim of a truck accident or the surviving family members of a deceased victim may elect to pursue a civil complaint against a driver who may have negligently caused the accident. A successfully completed wrongful death or personal injury lawsuit may help victims achieve financial reparations that may help them deal with medical bills, lost wages and other monetary damages recognized by our laws.
