Multi-car accident leads to 1 death in Tennessee

Rush-hour traffic stalled on Sam Cooper on March 27 as an accident blocked the eastbound lanes of the highway. Three vehicles were involved in the crash, and witnesses reported that one of the cars was so mangled that it looked like it had caught on fire. The other vehicles were also smashed into pieces, with debris strewn across the highway.

One person passed away in the accident. Three other people were rushed from the scene to get medical treatment for their injuries. Reports indicate that they should survive.

What the authorities cannot determine is just how the crash took place. It's possible that one of the vehicles was actually going west before the crash, even though all three ended up in the eastbound lanes. The police have been talking to anyone who witnessed the crash, marking the vehicles' locations on the highway and trying to work through all of the details.

Witnesses also expressed confusion when asked, though, saying they did not know how the wreck could have taken place. The wreck happened near the on-ramp for Highland. The police blocked everything off for around four hours before they allowed traffic to begin to move again.

The woman who died was 67 years old. When the medical responders got to the site, she had already passed away.

Have you lost a loved one in an accident or suffered from serious injuries because of the negligence of another driver? This happens all too often in Tennessee, and you need to make sure that you fully understand the rights you may have to compensation.
