Two dead after three car crash in Tennessee


Car accidents can happen so quickly that victims are oftentimes unable to process them. In what seems like a split second, a person can be rear-ended, and then a car driving in the opposite lane may clip the side of his or her vehicle; before they know it, a multiple-vehicle accident has occurred. A multi-vehicle accident can have devastating consequences. Victims may suffer a variety of injuries, and, at worst, these injuries may prove fatal.

According to reports, a recent crash in Tennessee resulted in the deaths of two of the people involved. Early in the evening, a tractor-trailer rear-ended a Toyota sedan, which propelled both vehicles to cross over the two lanes of traffic and crash into a concrete median. A third car became involved when it hit the truck while driving in an opposite lane. This third driver was charged with driving with a suspended license but was not charged in connection with this crash.

Both the driver of the truck, 54, and the driver of the Toyota sedan, 81, died as a result of the crash. The driver of the Toyota sedan's wife and another passenger in his vehicle were rushed to a nearby hospital and were said to have been in critical condition.

Suffering debilitating injuries or the loss of loved ones following car accidents is not something anyone wants to have to endure. These are some of the most painful experiences a person can have. This is why, when the accident was the result of another driver's negligence, victims often choose to pursue compensation from the driver at fault. Compensation can help alleviate some of the financial burden by aiding with the costs associated with medical expenses and other damages resulting from the crash.
