Tennessee chain reaction car accident leads to entrapment

Whenever cars are stopped to wait for others to turn, there is a certain sense of vulnerability for drivers as they have no control over the actions of those behind them. In fact, sitting and waiting for a car to turn leads to a great many car accidents. A recent car accident in Tennessee occurred as others sat waiting for a turning car.

A 27-year-old woman was stopped while she waited for traffic to turn. A 49-year-old man came up behind her and also stopped as they waited. However, a 57-year-old woman came up behind that second vehicle and hit the back of it. That second vehicle was a pickup truck, and that vehicle then hit the back of the first woman's car.

The pickup driver was in the middle of the chain reaction crash and trapped in his truck. He needed to be extricated and then transported to a local medical facility. He was said to be in stable condition. The woman who crashed into the vehicle also needed medical attention, but her condition was not known.

It is unclear if the woman who caused the car accident will be cited or not. However, even if she is not cited for the car accident, the victim that she hit may have cause to file a lawsuit in a Tennessee civil court. If successful, a civil complaint can garner an award of monetary damages that help victims and families deal with medical bills, lost wages or other expenses related to being involved in a car accident.
