One short stretch along a Tennessee interstate has been the site of five fatal motor vehicle collisions caused by wrong-way drivers since March of 2013. Many of these accidents involved tractor trailer trucks. The most recent of these truck accidents has left families grieving for the loss of their loved ones. The family members of the victim killed in this crash may have the right to take action on his behalf.
The accident occurred around 1 a.m. A 21-year-old man was driving along the interstate before he crossed into the lanes of opposing traffic. It was at this point that his vehicle slammed into an oncoming tractor-trailer. The intense impact of the crash caused the hazardous materials on the big rig to ignite.
