Car accidents: Crash involving drunk driver kills 1, injures 1

While parking on the shoulder of the highway can be dangerous, in some cases, it could also be unavoidable. Should a car break down or run out of gas, the occupants may be stranded and unable to move out of the way of a fast moving vehicle, and car accidents involving similar circumstances can be disastrous. One person was killed and another suffered severe injuries following a recent collision involving a suspected drunk driver in Tennessee.

The accident reportedly took place on a recent Saturday at 3 a.m. after the man had parked his truck on the shoulder of a road. Law enforcement agents say that he was standing outside the truck when an oncoming vehicle suddenly veered across the road and struck him and his truck. He was pronounced dead soon thereafter, and a passenger who was waiting in the truck was admitted into the hospital in critical condition.

Although the driver who initiated the collision also suffered injuries, the nature of her condition remains unclear. However, authorities have advised that subsequent chemical tests indicated the presence of impairment. According to authorities, she is facing numerous charges in relation to the incident, including drunk driving and vehicular homicide.

Individuals who suffer serious harm or experience the loss of a loved one in car accidents involving drunk drivers may be left in search of justice. For advice on the best course of action to take, a person in Tennessee could benefit from retaining the services of an experienced attorney. An attorney can examine the client's case and assist in pursuing the full amount of compensation to which he or she is entitled to receive.
