During the summer, many Tennessee families and groups of friends may decide to take a road trip for their vacation. Some individuals decide to take an RV, which affords them the common conveniences of home wherever they might decide to travel. However, due to the immense size of an RV, great care must always be taken when operating one. Otherwise, a car accident could occur that could have serious, if not life-threatening, consequences for others involved in the accident.
According to the police, a car accident between an RV and a passenger vehicle occurred in Chattanooga. The accident occurred on a recent Sunday around 5 p.m. It is believed that the individual operating the RV was traveling west on a street but failed to yield to cross-traffic while proceeding through an intersection.
As the RV continued through the intersection, a passenger vehicle traveling north crashed into it. The driver of the car was extricated from the vehicle, according to the Chattanooga Fire Department, and rushed to a local hospital. The driver suffered serious injuries that were deemed to be non-life threatening.
Sometimes an individual in Tennessee might find him or herself involved in a car accident in which they have suffered serious injuries. If charges are formally filed and prosecutors secure a conviction on a charge that is related to the car accident, that conviction could help establish negligence on the part of the driver. Negligence is required to be proved before the court will consider awarding any damages to the victim.
