Memphis accident destroys 2 cars and injures both drivers

A growing economy and a population surge has made Tennessee one of the hot places to be in the South. Although most of the effects have been positive for the state and its residents, motor vehicle accidents are also on the rise as roads get more crowded.

When a car accident happens, it is always important to remain at the scene to ensure everyone's safety and law enforcement's ability to investigate the circumstances. Tennessee law requires drivers to stay with their cars at the scene if anyone has been injured and/or damage to one or more vehicle is significant.

A small drama played out around a traffic violation and a destructive car accident in Memphis recently, when a 19-year-old man was evading police. The driver had reported taken off from a traffic stop when his car struck another, leaving both vehicles in pieces.

The police from the traffic stop had not pursued the driver since he had not yet committed a felony. Authorities were at their leisure to charge him after the collision with reckless driving and financial responsibility for damage, as well as evading arrest.

The driver of the other car in the collision was transported to a local hospital; his injuries were reportedly not life-threatening. Both cars, however, were totaled by the accident.

The victims of motor vehicle accidents may consult an attorney about the wisdom of filing a civil lawsuit against the party or parties at fault. A jury-awarded verdict or settlement may help defray the expenses related to an unexpected crash, such as lost wages during recovery and medical costs.
