Tennessee car accident takes life of 1 man, other arrested

Whenever there is an accident of any sort, authorities may need to investigate to figure out a cause and if anyone is culpable. If there is cause to believe one party may have caused the car accident by acting illegally or negligently, there may be charges levied against that person and any victims may also have cause to pursue civil action. A recent car accident in Tennessee has led to the arrest of one man and the death of another.

A 34-year-old driver was headed west in a Dodge truck when he crossed over the center line. He was allegedly traveling at a high speed at that time. Authorities allege he hit a Dodge Magnum head-on. This caused the Magnum to spin around and the truck to go off the road and hit a tree.

The 22-year-old driver of the Dodge Magnum and the 34-year-old driver were both transported to a medical center for treatment of their injuries. However, the 22-year-old died as a result of the injuries he received. The other driver is now facing charges related to the crash and the exact nature of his injuries was not reported.

The charges the man may face can have an impact on his freedom, career and other aspects of his life. Despite the outcome of any criminal charges, the family of the man who died in the car accident may have legal recourse to seek monetary damages. If successful, the victim’s family may find they can possibly be awarded damages that may help them contend with the funeral costs, medical bills or any other expenses related to losing their loved one in the Tennessee crash.
