Tennessee man may face charges over fatal accident

From the Great Smoky Mountains to the Mississippi Valley, from winding dirt paths to the mighty interstate highways, roads are the past and present of transportation in Tennessee. As technology makes car travel more efficient and independent, cars are likely to be the future as well.

Although problems on the roads of the Volunteer State are rare, motor vehicle collisions can cause serious injury, permanent disability or even death to drivers, passengers and pedestrians. This is especially true if drivers are distracted by cellphones, impaired by drugs and alcohol or not paying close attention to road signs and laws.

A 33-year-old Lawrenceburg man may face criminal charges after police say he failed to stop at a stop sign just outside his hometown. Two passengers in a car, a 52-year-old woman and a 42-year-old woman, were killed when the man's truck pulled into the path of the vehicle and caused a high-speed collision.

Three others in the car, including a 6-year-old boy, were also injured in the crash. Reports show that the driver of the truck may have been driving under the influence of alcohol. Charges are pending while Lawrence County officials conduct an investigation.

Victims of motor vehicle accidents and the families and survivors of those killed in accidents have the right to seek restitution, including reimbursement of medical expenses and compensation for suffering and distress, from the party or parties at fault. A lawyer can be a valuable asset in efforts to be made whole through settlements, civil lawsuits and other legal actions.
