A recent accident occurred that involved a dump truck and an RV, officials from the Columbia Police Department say. The collision between the two vehicles occurred where Interstate 65 passes over Bear Creek Pike. The truck accident resulted in one woman being injured. When truck accidents like this result in serious injuries to individuals in Tennessee, the victims may choose to file personal injury suits to pursue compensation for damages associated with the crashes.
The accident occurred a little after 5 a.m. in mid-November, officials say. They say the RV was headed westbound, while the dump truck was headed eastbound. For reasons that are not entirely clear, the two vehicles collided with one another near the south ramp of I-65, police say.
After the collision, the RV rolled over repeatedly. Of the three individuals involved in the collision, only one was hospitalized. A female passenger in the RV was rushed to a local medical center for treatment for the injuries she suffered in the crash. This accident is currently still under investigation.
One of the keys to understanding a truck accident case like this one that caused an individual to suffer serious injury is the completion of a thorough investigation. This often helps to determine the accident's cause, in addition to gathering evidence. When trucking companies are involved, they will typically fight in order to prevent being held accountable for mistakes made by their employees. When truck accidents occur in Tennessee that result in serious injuries, victims have the right to attempt to legally hold those responsible accountable for their negligence.
