Car accident involving suspected drunk driver injures 2, kills 1

Impairment is a contributing factor in many motor vehicle accidents and collisions involving such negligence can have disastrous results. Those who encounter a drunk driver may be left with insufficient time to react and avoid collision, and they could end up suffering major injuries in the process. Two individuals were injured and another was killed during a recent car accident involving a suspected drunk driver in Tennessee.

Authorities responded to reports of the collision at around 11:30 p.m. on a recent Saturday. According to reports, the incident occurred as the driver of a southbound car crossed the median and continued traveling in northbound lanes. His car proceeded to strike a nearby vehicle head-on shortly thereafter, and the impact of the collision reportedly left as many as three individuals trapped within their vehicles.

Upon arriving at the scene of the crash, emergency responders worked to free the driver and passenger of the second vehicle. Both individuals suffered injuries in the crash, and one of them reportedly had to be airlifted to a medical facility for treatment. The driver who caused the collision was pronounced dead at the scene, and police have advised that initial investigations suggest that impairment may have been a contributing factor.

Being involved in a dangerous car accident can be a scary experience. Those who suffer serious injuries in such an incident due to the negligent actions of another party may wish to exercise their rights to pursue restitution through the civil justice system, and they could choose to retain the services of an experienced attorney for guidance in the process. An attorney can examine the incident thoroughly and assist a client in Tennessee in pursuing the restitution deserved through a claim against the party deemed responsible.
