Early morning car accident kills 1 in Tennessee

There are a multitude of scenarios under which a dangerous motor vehicle collision could occur. When operating a vehicle during times of decreased visibility, drivers may find it challenging to spot a car that has shifted into an oncoming lane in time to react and avoid a potential catastrophe. A recent head-on car accident has killed one person and left another with life-threatening injuries in Tennessee.

Law enforcement agents responded to reports of a major collision at around 5:30 a.m. on a recent Saturday. For reasons unknown, police stated that the driver of an eastbound vehicle had veered into the opposite lane and struck a car head-on. The driver who caused the crash was subsequently transported to the hospital with severe injuries, while the driver of the second car was pronounced dead at the scene.

Although an investigation is underway, many of the details concerning what might have caused the driver to enter oncoming lanes remains unclear. Motor vehicle accidents of this nature can have catastrophic outcomes. Families who lose someone close under similar circumstances may wish to exercise their right to pursue restitution in civil court, but they might be uncertain of what to expect from and how to prepare for what comes next.

Following a fatal car accident, the surviving loved ones of the victim could find it helpful to obtain legal counsel for guidance on how best to handle the situation. An attorney can examine the incident thoroughly and provide a client in Tennessee with assistance in navigating the civil justice system. This type of guidance could prove vital to helping a person pursue the restitution deserved through a wrongful death claim against the party deemed at fault.
