Car accidents continue to take a toll on Tennessee highways

Whether one is a resident of Tennessee or simply traveling through the state to another destination, it is important to remain vigilant behind the wheel. Unfortunately, car accidents continue to take a toll on victims and their families on a daily basis. One recent crash killed a resident and an out-of-state traveler along a stretch of local highway.

Tennessee State Police responded to the scene of a crash that occurred along State Highway 28 just before 4 p.m. on a recent weekday. The accident report stated that a 2016 model pickup truck was towing a camper in the southbound lane of the highway. At the same time, an older model pickup was traveling in the northbound lanes. For reasons that are yet unclear, the driver of the second truck veered over and into the path of oncoming traffic. 

The collision killed both the 66-year-old driver of the first truck and the 60-year-old driver of the second vehicle. A 66-year-old female passenger in the first vehicle suffered undisclosed injuries. A third vehicle struck the rear of the camper, but police said that driver did not suffer any injuries. 

Tennessee officials have not completed their investigation into the reasons why the second driver crossed over into the opposing lane. The driver of the first truck was a native of Ohio, as is his passenger. When these types of tragic car accidents happen, the lives of injured victims and surviving family members are seldom the same. Along with the physical and emotional pain, victims and their families often incur significant monetary damages. A successfully navigated civil suit against the parties deemed liable -- or their estates in the case of a fatal wreck -- may allow victims to recover their documented losses.
