Car accidents: Head-on collision kills driver and injures others

Drivers must focus more than ever to keep their eyes on the road. Prior to the use of mobile phones, there were plenty of distractions all around a driver, such as the scenery on the road, other occupants of a vehicle, radios and more. Mobile phones and other technology, such as navigation systems, are a significant added distraction and can result in serious car accidents. Although it is not known if a recent crash is the result of a driver's use of a cell phone, something resulted in the Tennessee driver committing a fatal driving error.

The 58-year-old driver of a sedan was traveling in the opposite direction of a minivan when the crash occurred. For unknown reasons, she traveled across the center line and struck the minivan. The sedan driver was reportedly not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash. She suffered serious injuries and did not survive.

The occupants of the minivan were a 65-year-old woman and a 64-year-old male. Both occupants suffered injuries and were transferred for medical treatment. There has not been a report on either injured victim's medical condition.

Car accidents such as this one can result in serious injuries and/or death. In addition to pain and discomfort, injuries can result in expensive medical treatment. Often, victims heal from injuries but remain under the financial strain an accident may have placed on their lives. Tennessee personal injury attorneys understand the hardships victims may face and are able to guide victims through insurance claims for documented damages. Some victims may choose to file a personal injury lawsuit with an attorney's assistance if damages exceed insurance policy limits.
