Tennessee man killed in car accident

A man was recently killed in a crash that occurred on Monday, Oct. 28. The three-vehicle car accident also resulted in the critical injury of a second person. According to the Tennessee Highway Patrol, the incident happened when a car was hit by a pickup truck at approximately 6:45 a.m.

The pickup truck was being driven by a 27-year-old man, and the car was operated by a 44-year-old man. Allegedly, the younger man was driving southbound when his pickup crossed over the centerline into oncoming traffic. His vehicle first sideswiped a vehicle being driven by a 37-year-old man.

Fortunately, the 37-year-old was not injured. However, the pickup continued forward and struck the 44-year-old man's car head-on. The man in that vehicle was pronounced dead at the scene of this tragic car accident. The pickup driver was taken immediately to the hospital where he was in critical condition as of the afternoon on the day of the collision.

Tennessee troopers continue to investigate the cause of this car accident, and there was no indication as to when an official report of the crash is expected. At this time, charges are pending. However, if the initial report of what took place proves accurate, then family members of the man who died may wish to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit against the man who allegedly caused the accident. A successful wrongful death claim could enable family members to obtain financial relief as reimbursement for monetary damages sustained. This could help in paying for funeral costs and other financial losses that inevitably accompany these types of tragedies.
