Trucking accidents: Moment of distraction leads to rear-end crash

Reaching for an object in the passenger seat while driving can be hazardous, as it forces drivers to take their hands off the wheel and eyes off the road, even if only for a second. This moment of distraction increases the risk a collision will occur, and trucking accidents involving similar circumstances can have disastrous results. One man was injured after his vehicle was rear-ended by a tractor-trailer during a recent collision in Tennessee.

All drivers have a duty to remain aware and alert at all times while out on the open road. Those who fail to take the necessary precautions endanger themselves and may also place the safety of others at risk, as motor vehicle collisions can have disastrous results. A 22-year-old man has died and another person was injured in a recent car accident that took place in Tennessee.

Being involved in a collision can be a traumatic experience. Those who suffer major injuries in such an incident may encounter a variety of hardships, some of which could have a substantial impact on their lives. Two individuals suffered major injuries in a recent car accident that claimed the life of a 46-year-old man in Tennessee.

Car accidents: 1 airlifted to hospital after recent crash

A woman reportedly suffered severe injuries in a recent collision involving a suspected drunk driver in Tennessee. Car accidents involving drunk drivers can be highly dangerous, and spotting such negligence in time to react can be nearly impossible at times. Those who suffer serious or permanent damage due to the actions of an impaired driver may be entitled to pursue restitution, but they might be uncertain where to turn for guidance in the process.

Traffic lights and stop signs are placed at intersections to assist with controlling the flow of traffic and helping to keep drivers safe. Failing to adhere to a stop sign can be hazardous and may increase the odds that a potentially dangerous car accident will occur. A recent two-vehicle crash involving similar circumstances has reportedly claimed the life of an 18-year-old woman in Tennessee.

Leaving the scene of an accident is not only unlawful, but it can also be unconscionable at times. The victim of a hit-and-run car accident may be left alone without medical care for extended periods, and the results of a delay in treatment can be disastrous. The brother of a Philadelphia Eagles player has died following a recent crash involving similar circumstances in Tennessee.

Car accidents: Early morning crash injures 2 in Tennessee

With a substantial reduction in visibility, operating a vehicle at night comes with its inherent risks. However, sometimes it may also be necessary to travel during similar time periods, and those who must travel at night may choose to reduce the chances of being involved in dangerous car accidents by exercising caution and remaining alert at all times. Unfortunately, this might not always be enough. A recent early morning accident in Tennessee has left two individuals with injuries.

Demanding schedules increase the risk of trucking accidents

It is no secret that commercial vehicle accidents can have cataclysmic results. While common accident causes such as distraction and impairment may play a role in many trucking accidents, recent studies suggest there is a more prevalent concern. With many truck drivers in Tennessee and elsewhere feeling rushed to complete objectives, a demanding schedule could lead to a variety of poor driving decisions or behaviors.

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.

Trucking accidents: Semi rolls into home, kills man on porch

A 46-year-old man has died during a recent accident in which a tractor-trailer rolled into the front of a residence in Tennessee. Trucking accidents can be devastating under any circumstances, but most individuals might not feel the need to fear the possibility of becoming involved in a similar incident while resting in the safety of their homes. Unfortunately, even a house may stand little chance of holding its own should a tractor-trailer veer off course.
