Recent car accident in Tennessee injures 4, kills 1

Having to pull over on the side of the road for a flat tire can be a harrowing experience. With traffic constantly passing by, remaining in an emergency lane can be dangerous, especially if a nearby driver is operating a vehicle while impaired. A recent car accident that took place under similar circumstances in Tennessee has left several with injuries and claimed the life of a 13-year-old girl.

According to reports, the accident took place on a recent Sunday night when a driver was forced to pull over due to a flat tire. While parked in the emergency lane, another driver suddenly hit his vehicle from behind, and the impact of the collision forced the car to strike a nearby utility pole. The driver of the car and three passengers were injured in the crash and taken to a hospital for treatment, while a fifth passenger was reportedly killed in the process.

Law enforcement agents advised that several witnesses claim the driver of the second vehicle was exhibiting erratic behavior shortly causing the crash. Police have advised that there were several open containers of alcohol within his vehicle, and he was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving. In addition to DUI charges, the man is also facing charges for reckless driving and vehicular homicide.

car accident involving a drunk driver can be a devastating incident that could place the well-being of everyone involved in harm's way. Those who suffer serious harm or lose someone close due to such negligence could choose to speak with a personal injury attorney for guidance on the legal avenues available to them. An attorney can evaluate the incident and assist a client in Tennessee in pursuing the restitution deserved through a claim against the party deemed at fault.
