Two killed and three injured in Robertson County car crash

Two people lost their lives and a three-year-old girl was left critically injured after a head-on collision in Robertson County involving two cars. The three-year-old girl was traveling with her mother, grandmother and infant brother in one of the cars involved in the accident. The car collision occurred during the late evening hours in the area where Springfield turns into Greenbrier. A car traveling in the opposite direction collided head-on with the car being driven by the girl's mother. The grandmother of the girl, who was a passenger, died from injuries sustained during the car accident. The 27-year-old driver of the other car also lost his life in the crash.

The 28-year-old mother of the girl, the girl herself and her three-week-old brother were taken to Nashville-based Vanderbilt Medical Center for treatment. The mother of the girl has since undergone a series of surgeries for broken legs and a damaged diaphragm. The little girl suffered a serious head injury along with injuries to her neck and spine. She is on life support presently. The infant boy was slightly injured during the car accident.

Driving in the wrong lane, speeding and driving after drinking are chief factors that result in an accident. Negligence of drivers can lead to accidents, which can lead to injuries that may leave an accident victim temporarily or permanently disabled.

Under the state laws of Tennessee, the accident victims are entitled to claim monetary damages for losses they suffered during an accident, such as medical expenses and lost wages. They may sue the driver directly, as well as the driver's insurance carrier.
