Head-on car accident injures 6, kills 1 in Tennessee

Even the most cautious of drivers may find it challenging to react to the results of another party's negligence. For instance, when a vehicle veers off course and enters the opposite lane, oncoming drivers may be left with little time to respond to the situation. A recent head-on car accident in Tennessee has left multiple individuals with injuries and claimed the life of a 49-year-old woman.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol responded to reports of the collision just before noon on a recent Thursday. According to authorities, the incident occurred when the driver of an eastbound car lost control and veered into the opposite lanes of traffic. Her car proceeded to strike a westbound van head-on soon thereafter.

Law enforcement agents have advised that as many as six individuals suffered injuries in the crash. A passenger in the van reportedly suffered fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene. Although an investigation into the incident is underway, no further details were provided as to what might have caused the driver to lose control of her car, and it remains unclear if any other contributing factors were present, such as impairment or distraction.

Suffering serious harm or losing a family member in a fatal car accident can be a devastating experience. If another party was deemed at fault in the collision, the victims or surviving loved ones of the deceased may wish to pursue accountability in civil court, but the process can be intimidating. Fortunately, there are attorneys that can examine the incident and assist a person in Tennessee in pursuing the full amount of restitution entitled through a personal injury or wrongful death claim.
