There are times when certain road conditions can make a driver feel unsafe. For example, if it is raining or snowing, drivers could be concerned that an accident may occur. Most people likely feel relatively safe when they are stopped for construction, but truck accidents can, unfortunately, occur at any time and can even impact vehicles that are not in motion. Tennessee police are conducting an investigation into a recent accident that killed six people and involved nine vehicles, eight of which were stopped at the time of the collision.
According to reports, the incident occurred just after 7 p.m. one night in late June just before the entrance of a construction zone. A representative for the Tennessee Department of Transportation has said that the accident happened where cars were stopped as lanes were closed due to a resurfacing project. Police indicate that a tractor trailer driven by a 39-year-old man slammed into the back of several stopped vehicles.
