Tennessee drunk driver accident claims life of ex-lawmaker

Tennessee drivers strive to operate their motor vehicles safely to avoid car accidents. However, in some cases, a crash is unavoidable -- especially when it is caused by another driver who happens to be drunk behind the wheel. Unfortunately, a drunk driving car accident like this can happen in an instant, but those who are harmed (and their family members) may be affected by the harsh reality of its aftermath for years to come.

Teen dies in Tennessee car accident, 6 injured

Tennessee Highway Patrol officers say that a 17-year-old passenger was killed in a horrific three-car accident along Interstate 64. The crash occurred in White House on the afternoon of a recent Thursday. Initially, law enforcement officers reported that two people died in the car accident, but later they reported that the second individual actually survived, albeit with serious injuries. The serious accident resulted in injury to six different people, and three motor vehicles were involved.

After losing control, the vehicle entered the interstate median and then it crossed direction into oncoming southbound traffic, where it crashed head-on into a sport utility vehicle.

Tennessee government tries to prevent teen car wrecks

Every Tennessee parent will agree that it is important to educate teens on safe driving practices in order prevent accidents and injuries. Indeed, story after story can be told regarding the loss of life and car wrecks that have resulted from a teen driver whose life was cut too short. While some of these accidents are caused by the teens themselves, others involve teens who were the unfortunate victims of another irresponsible driver. Still, defensive driving practices and safe driving practices, if properly learned, can most certainly save lives.

During the summer months, teenage drivers are more likely to get into a car accident than adult drivers are. The National Safety Council says that seven of the most deadly driving days happen during the summer months each year. This is why the Highway Safety Office of Tennessee Governor is trying to bring more attention to driver safety issues, reaching out to teenagers and helping provide valuable information to parents through an online driver safety campaign.
