Tennessee car wrecks: Teenage pedestrian struck in a crosswalk

Drivers must be exceedingly careful to avoid hitting pedestrians while they are operating a motor vehicle. Pedestrians have the legal right-of-way in the state of Tennessee and drivers who do not respect the fact can be held accountable. For example, car wrecks involving pedestrians could happen after a driver fails to watch where he or she is going and/or fails to take care while approaching a crosswalk. Horrific accidents result from this kind of negligence and many Tennessee residents have suffered injury or death because of them.
