Getting into a crash is probably one of the scariest things that can happen to someone on a day-to-day basis. Tennessee drivers may have heard of a recent crash on Alcoa Highway that happened last week. The aftermath of it includes one woman whose life was lost, and two others who suffered different levels of injuries. The kind of time and effort it can take to recover from such a devastating crash like this is often extensive.
The fatal motor vehicle accident occurred last week on Thursday, around 1:30 in the afternoon, one source explains. The details of the crash appear to be that there were two cars, one of which was attempting to turn left into a parking lot when they and another car, coming from the other way, collided. The report explains that the first car, a Chevrolet Cavalier, hadn’t yielded the right of way to the second car, a Cadillac Escalade, when the crash happened.
There were reported to have been two people in the Chevrolet – a driver and passenger, and just a driver in the Cadillac. The passenger of the Chevrolet lost her life and was found to have on the scene. The two other drivers were both taken to nearby medical facilities in order to treat their injuries, with the Chevrolet’s driver being in critical condition. Each person involved was reported to have had their seatbelts fastened and there was no mention of any influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the accident.
As senseless as it can seem, car accidents shake up people’s lives every day. To have been involved in one can be extremely difficult to get over, especially if the accident resulted in serious injuries or the death of a loved one. Tennessee residents who believe that their accident was the result of another driver’s negligence or endangering, working with an experienced attorney could help to receive some support as you begin to move forward from the accident.
