3 car accident in Tennessee sends 13 to hospital

All it can take for a normal day to turn into one of filled with tragedy is a minor error on the part of a driver that leads to a rapid chain of events. Given the high rate of speed and the large volume of cars on the road, a car accident can occur at anytime and without warning. A recent accident in Tennessee sent 13 individuals to the hospital after three cars became involved in a serious car accident.

Police have stated that the accident occurred at around 5:45 p.m. At that time, a minivan carrying 11 individuals hit a vehicle and then careened into the path of another vehicle and struck it head on. The two occupants of the third vehicle along with two adult occupants of the minivan were transported to an area hospital where they were listed as being in critical condition.

Meanwhile, nine other occupants of the van were also injured, including several children. They were also brought to the hospital. Their condition is not known at this time.

It remains unclear at this time exactly what caused the van to strike the first vehicle, which Tennessee police have alleged was the initial act that caused this car accident. However, it is likely that further information will be disclosed as police continue to investigate. This information could be helpful in assisting those victims who were injured through no fault of their own to seek monetary damages as reimbursement for their injuries. Those filing claims will need to prove that their injuries were caused by the negligent acts of another party to the collision.
