Trucking accidents: Interstate crash injures 4 in Tennessee

Due to the substantial increases in size and weight of tractor-trailers, truck drivers must ensure there is sufficient time and space to initiate a lane change. Should a driver fail to allow enough space or fail to spot a nearby car, the results can be devastating, as trucking accidents run a greater chance of ending in disaster. Four individuals were taken to a medical facility for treatment following a recent accident involving a tractor-trailer in Tennessee.

The accident reportedly took place on a recent Wednesday evening when the driver of a tractor-trailer pinned a car against a concrete barrier while attempting to swap lanes. According to police, a witness claims the truck crossed several lanes of traffic and rear-ended a nearby truck before slamming into the car. Upon arriving at the scene, emergency responders worked to free the occupants that were trapped within the car.

While the driver of the truck was not injured in the accident, four occupants in the car were taken to the hospital for medical care. According to reports, one of the occupants suffered severe injuries in the accident. Although many of the details surrounding the investigation of the crash remain unclear, police have advised that the driver of the truck was issued a citation.

Trucking accidents can be devastating incidents that could leave a person with serious or permanent injuries. Those who suffer severe harm due to another party's negligent actions may wish to exercise their right to pursue restitution through the civil justice system, and they could choose to speak with an attorney for guidance in the process. An attorney can examine the incident and assist a client in Tennessee in pursuing the compensation entitled through a personal injury claim.
