Car accidents: Crash involving 5 vehicles kills 2, injures 2

When two vehicles collide, there is always a chance that nearby drivers will find it nearly impossible to react in time to avoid being caught up in the accident. Chain-reaction car accidents that involve multiple vehicles can have catastrophic results, and in some cases, a similar incident may even prove fatal. A recent crash involving five vehicles in Tennessee has claimed the life of two individuals and left two others with injuries.

Authorities received reports of the incident just before 2 p.m. on a recent Tuesday. According to initial investigations, the crash occurred after the driver of a truck side-swiped a nearby vehicle. The impact of the initial collision reportedly forced the truck to cross the median and go airborne, where it subsequently struck a trailer and initiated a chain-reaction crash involving three more vehicles.

Police have advised that the driver and a passenger in the truck both suffered fatal injuries in the accident. Although it remains unclear what might have caused the accident to occur, two others who were involved in the crash reportedly suffered injuries in the process. Accidents of this nature can be dangerous, and those who are unable to react to a vehicle that crosses into an oncoming lane may unfortunately be left to suffer the consequences.

Car accidents that take place under similar circumstances run the unfortunate risk of placing the safety and well-being of everyone nearby in jeopardy. Those who suffer serious injuries in similar incidents could choose to speak with an attorney for guidance on the legal avenues available to them. An attorney can examine the incident thoroughly and assist a client in Tennessee in pursuing the full amount of restitution entitled through a personal injury claim.
