Being on the road can be a dangerous endeavor, whether in a vehicle or walking along the roadway. The sheer force of being involved in a car accident can lead to devastating injuries or worse for pedestrians and vehicle occupants alike. A recent car accident along a Tennessee roadway ended with the death of a pedestrian.
Even when all parties on the road are abiding by the rules of the road, there is still the potential for a traffic accident. Intersections are a common place for car accidents to occur. Recently, in Tennessee, a car accident at an intersection took the life of one of the drivers involved.
Cars traveling toward each other can pose a greater risk to drivers and passengers compared to when there aren't other cars around. A head-on collision can lead to greater damage and injury compared to a single-car accident. If the head-on collision occurs because a car is traveling in the wrong lane, the results can be fatal. One recent head-on collision in Tennessee led to the life of a child being taken.
Any kind of car and motorcycle accident can result in injuries or worse for those involved. However, when there are several vehicles involved, there may be a greater risk of injury for anyone who is caught up in the car accident. A recent multi-vehicle car accident on a Tennessee roadway resulted in one individual losing his life and a road closure that lasted for several hours.
Whenever a person climbs into the passenger seat of a vehicle, that person is essentially putting his or her life in the hands of the driver of that vehicle. A driver then has the legal responsibility to safeguard his or her passengers in any way he or she can. If a car accident ensues and a passenger in Tennessee is killed or injured, they or their family may have cause to seek legal damage against a driver. A recent car accident in Tennessee could result in this kind of legal action, as three people died as a result of the crash and apparent actions of the driver.
A passenger in a motor vehicle essentially puts his or her life in the hands of the driver. The driver also owes each passenger a duty of reasonable care while transporting them in their vehicles. A recent Tennessee car accident highlights the weight of this responsibility for drivers, as one passenger lost her life and six others were injured in a head on collision.
Whenever vehicles are on the roadway, being mindful of traffic laws and ensuring that vehicles function properly are vital to remaining safe. However, no amount of safety measures can keep a driver safe if another approaching vehicle malfunctions and causes a car accident. A recent Tennessee car accident resulted in the loss of life for one woman after a bus malfunctioned.
When drivers are traveling on roadways, they typically have a certain amount of faith that other drivers are going to abide by the rules of the road. This is actually for the safety of everyone on the roads. Any kind of intersection can be a particularly dangerous place for drivers, especially if another driver disregards the rules of the road at any time. One Tennessee intersection became the scene of a car accident recently.
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.
All it may take is a moment for a normal day to turn into one filled with tragedy. Such was the case recently as motorists traveled along Interstate 65, when one car crossed the center line and struck an oncoming vehicle. As a result, the car wreck has left at least one dead and sent six more to a Tennessee hospital.
