Tennessee car crash kills 2

A car accident that occurred in Coffee County on July 12 at 7 p.m. killed two people. According to investigators, a 35-year-old driver of a sedan was headed west in the eastbound lanes when it crashed head-on into a truck.

One of the truck's passengers, a 63-year-old woman, was killed on impact. The 63-year-old male driver of the truck and a 22-year-old passenger were injured. Their conditions were not known at the time of the report. The driver of the sedan was thrown from his vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene. After the initial wreck, a third vehicle collided with the sedan and was hit by debris from the accident.

As officials worked to clear the scene for eventual traffic, eastbound interstate lanes were closed for about four hours. At the time of the report, law enforcement officials were still working to determine the exact cause of the car accident. They did not state whether they believed speed or distracted driving were factors, but they did not believe alcohol was a factor.

In cases where the cause of a car accident is not known, the plaintiff's attorney may have to do a bit more work in order to build a case. He or she can use information from law enforcement investigations and eyewitness accounts to possibly determine the cause of the collision. If successful, the plaintiff may be able to collect compensation for damages that resulted from the accident, such as hospital bills, lost income and pain and suffering.
