Recent Tennessee truck accidents: RV and dump truck collide

A recent accident occurred that involved a dump truck and an RV, officials from the Columbia Police Department say. The collision between the two vehicles occurred where Interstate 65 passes over Bear Creek Pike. The truck accident resulted in one woman being injured. When truck accidents like this result in serious injuries to individuals in Tennessee, the victims may choose to file personal injury suits to pursue compensation for damages associated with the crashes. 

The accident occurred a little after 5 a.m. in mid-November, officials say. They say the RV was headed westbound, while the dump truck was headed eastbound. For reasons that are not entirely clear, the two vehicles collided with one another near the south ramp of I-65, police say.

Car accident kills one, seriously injures another

A fatal accident that took the life of one Tennessee individual and left another seriously injured occurred recently. The accident took place in Clarksville around 3 a.m. on a recent Saturday in November, police say. One of the drivers is now facing charges.

A car that was being operated in the eastbound lane of the 101st Airborne Division Parkway was approaching an intersection. Suddenly, a pickup truck driven by a 26-year-old man in the same lane rear-ended the car. The force of the crash caused the truck to drive onto the car, as well as push it completely through the intersection, police say..

Tennessee driver may face charges after fatal car accident

Any car accident that ends with a fatality is, without question, tragic. Fatal car accidents that clearly result from negligence are especially senseless, because they can be prevented so easily. One such negligent driver in Tennessee may face criminal charges after an accident last week that left two dead. Charges are currently pending against the driver. 

Last week, a man was driving a pickup truck southbound on Tennessee 14, when he crossed over into the northbound lane, swiping a vehicle. The driver of that vehicle was unharmed and was able to navigate the vehicle off of the highway. The truck then hit another sedan head-on, killing the driver of that vehicle. 

Tennessee car accident injures 4 critically

A recent car accident that involved a two-vehicle collision has left four Tennessee individuals in critical condition, local police investigators say. The car accident occurred in Hamilton County on a recent Sunday afternoon in October. Around 3:15 p.m., emergency crews were called to the intersection of Highway 58 and a local road to investigate reports of a car accident.

Upon their arrival, they were greeted by the sight of the two-car accident in which the cars had apparently collided head-on. According to the investigators, the accident occurred when a vehicle headed northbound on Highway 58 tried to make a turn. That vehicle, driven by a 27-year-old woman who had her two children along as passengers, then struck a southbound vehicle.

Family of 3 killed in cross-over car accident in Alcoa

Driving on Tennessee roads can be dangerous, and, regardless of how careful a driver is, the actions of others can often not be anticipated. A family from Seymour was involved in a tragic car accident on a recent Saturday afternoon. This was one of many cross-over accidents that have claimed lives on Tennessee roads in recent months.

According to a preliminary Alcoa Police report, a 48-year-old man was traveling along a local roadway, accompanied by a 47-year-old woman and another 23-year-old passenger. At the same time, traveling in the opposite direction, a 34-year-old Walland man was driving an SUV. For reasons yet to be determined, the SUV veered across the center line and smashed head-on into the car carrying the three family members.

Fatal car accident on I-240 leaves one dead

When a car accident in Tennessee occurs, the aftermath can have serious effects on an individual's life. When the affected individual is seriously injured or killed, the repercussions of the accident can follow him or her, or surviving family members, around for life. When an individual is killed in a car accident due to the negligence of another individual, the surviving family sometimes seeks to file a wrongful death claim.

A recent car accident that left one dead is still being investigated by police. The crash happened in Memphis on a recent Sunday morning on I-240. According to the police, a man was driving westbound when he somehow lost control of his vehicle, which caused it to leave the roadway.

DUI and distracted driving lead to fatal accident

Tennessee residents who find themselves involved in car accidents know first-hand that their effects can be felt long after the accident occurs. Whether individuals are seriously injured or killed, these effects can remain with those individuals or their families for the remainder of their lives. When a car accident results in the death of another individual, that individual's family sometimes chooses to file a wrongful death suit against the driver believed to have caused the accident.

A fatal accident that occurred earlier this year has resulted in a teen facing a multitude of charges. It occurred in May on Highway 385 in Memphis, around 3:30 p.m. The four-vehicle crash led to one death, one individual being critically injured and three others suffering other injuries.

Worker falls 30 feet and hurts back in job site injury

It is fairly common for a job site injury to occur on construction projects in Tennessee. This is due, in part, to the fact that construction workers typically work at great heights and around heavy machinery on a daily basis. A recent construction accident in another state resulted in a job site injury and landed a worker in the hospital.

The accident occurred in October in the downtown area of a city. A 33-year-old construction worker had climbed to the third floor of the site via a ladder, only to fall when a piece plywood did not support his weight, according to the site foreman. He plummeted around three stories -- 30 feet -- and landed on the ground.

Worker severely electrocuted in job site injury

Although accidents can occur in many lines of work, injuries are often most common at construction sites. Between the equipment that employees utilize, the heights they must climb to and the dangerous surroundings they typically work in, accidents occur on Tennessee construction job sites all too frequently. One recent job site injury at a construction site in another state sent a worker to the hospital.

The accident occurred at a mixed use construction project around 9:30 a.m. on a recent Wednesday. The construction worker, a 56-year-old man, was in the process of pouring concrete from the building's second level when the equipment that he was using connected with an electrical line. He received an electric shock and was burned as a result.

Car accident sends 3 to hospital

Tennessee residents who have been involved in a car accident can attest to the fact that an accident can happen in the blink of an eye. One moment, everything is okay, but in the very next moment, a life is changed, sometimes irrevocably. A recent car accident sent three individuals to the hospital.

The accident occurred in Jackson on a recent Monday around 7 p.m, according to officials. It involved two vehicles and occurred at the intersection of U.S. 45 South and a local roadway. According to those who witnessed the accident, it occurred when a vehicle collided with another vehicle that was turning in front of it.
