29-year-old pedestrian killed in fatal Tennessee accident

A Tennessee pedestrian was fatally struck by a car on a recent Thursday evening in Memphis. The unfortunate accident happened at approximately 11 p.m. The people who bore witness to the scene said that it was gruesome.

According to witnesses, they saw the lifeless body of the 29-year-old female pedestrian in the street. She had been struck and killed by a Cadillac while she was walking. The Cadillac's shattered windshield was evidence of the tragic accident that had just occurred. A silver Pontiac Grand Prix was also involved, but the driver apparently fled the scene. Meanwhile, the Cadillac driver remained at the crash site. 

Authorities shut down multiple lanes of traffic while emergency crews and police investigators tried to piece together exactly what occurred. By Friday morning, all lanes of traffic had reopened. Police are still investigating the crash, but no arrests or citations have been made or issued yet. It is unknown if either the Cadillac or Pontiac driver will be charged criminally in regard to the tragedy.

The fact that the Tennessee pedestrian died in this accident makes the question of who is at fault all the more important. Indeed, family members of the woman, particularly if she was married or had children, will want to get some kind of closure relating to their loved one's loss. Knowing how the crash occurred will no doubt help with this. Furthermore, evidence of fault could help family members pursue wrongful death claims against the party or parties believed responsible, should they choose to pursue such measures.
