An SUV carrying a family of six was traveling along an interstate in Tennessee when traffic in front of them caused the driver to slow his vehicle to a stop. A semi-truck moving along the roadway behind them, however, reportedly failed to slow down or stop and slammed into the back of the SUV. The impact had fatal results.
