Tennessee airplane accident kills 4 in fiery explosion

A horrific and fiery Tennessee plane crash has resulted in the death of four people. The twin-propeller aircraft crashed on a recent Monday afternoon, next to a place where children were playing and swimming at a YMCA. One witness said she was with the playing children at the time of the crash, heard the explosion and saw what she describes as a wall of flames erupting from the accident site.

Debris was strewn across the ground for 100 feet in all directions. According to the Federal Aviation Administration, the aircraft was headed to land at Nashville's John C. Tune airport. However, it fell from the sky and crashed approximately 10 miles southwest of the airport.

The District Fire Chief for Nashville said that they were very quick to realize no one could possibly have survived the crash. He said that it was the most horrible plane crash he had ever seen. Rescuers, nevertheless, worked tirelessly to recover three of the bodies. They expressed their confidence in locating the fourth.

The details as to how this extremely unfortunate Tennessee accident occurred have yet to be revealed as authorities continue to investigate the incident. One of the things that is known, however, is that the plane is owned by a private company. As for who is at fault and/or financially liable for the accident and resulting injuries, the victims' families may opt to investigate the facts of the event to determine who may be responsible. Knowing who appears to have been responsible for the crash will assist family members who wish to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit relating to the tragedy.
