Fatal car accident results in 3 injured, 1 woman dead

A Tennessee woman is dead after a car crash involving multiple vehicles. According to reports, the driver potentially at fault is also facing charges from a separate incident.

A 27-year-old man was driving north on Highway 411 in Blount County at around 11 a.m. on May 12. Police say that the man was speeding when he began to pass other vehicles in his Nissan Altima. At one point, the man swerved into the oncoming lane after losing control of the car. He collided with an approaching vehicle driven by a 19-year-old woman. The Nissan then spun into a Toyota Camry driven by a 72-year-old Tellico Plains woman. The Nissan driver was thrown from his vehicle by the force of the collision.

All four people involved in the crash, including one Toyota passenger, were transported to area hospitals. The Toyota driver died from her injuries later in the day. Two individuals involved are still receiving treatment. The Nissan driver was treated at UT Medical Center where he is awaiting charges. According to reports, he had just posted bond and left police custody the previous day on drug and DUI charges related to a separate incident.

Although the outcome of the criminal charges in this incident is uncertain, this does not bar wrongful death and personal injury lawsuits against the driver if he is found negligent. An attorney may be able to help by examining the facts of the case and representing those who have suffered damages as a result of the driver's recklessness. These damages could include compensation for any injuries, pain and suffering or loss of companionship stemming from the car accident.
