Motorists in Tennessee may be unaware of the available technological advances that assist drivers with decreasing their reaction times, thus reducing their risk of involvement in motor vehicle collisions. Many of these are currently available as options people can choose to add when they are purchasing a new vehicle, but the government does not currently mandate that manufacturers include them as standard features.
Residents of Tennessee may have heard about a bus wreck near the Atlanta airport that has so far not resulted in criminal charges against either driver. Two of the passengers of the bus were treated by emergency staff at Grady Memorial Hospital for serious injuries. Sixteen other occupants of the bus were taken to that hospital and Atlanta Medical Center for treatment of minor injuries. Despite the extent of damage to the bus and all passengers being thrown by the impact, no injuries were reported to be life threatening.
