2-vehicle accident kills Tennessee teenagers

Tennessee teenagers can feel invincible, especially if they have recently learned to drive. Unfortunately, the roads can be a dangerous place. In a split second, a fun ride with friends can quickly turn tragic. When such accidents occur, the family members of the deceased are often left dealing with grief and anger. This is especially true when the accident was caused by a drunk driver.

Two 17-year-old girls were killed a DUI car accident. The teenagers both attended school in Memphis, Tennessee. Reports do not offer details regarding the girls’ injuries. It is unclear from reports whether the deceased girls were pronounced dead at the scene or were transported to a hospital first.

The girls were traveling in a vehicle with three other people. Two of these were also hurt in the crash, but their injuries were not life-threatening. The fifth person did not suffer any injuries. Reports do not clearly explain the relationship between these five people.

The other vehicle was driven by a 32-year-old man from Mississippi. He has been charged with DUI death and DUI injury. Reports do not state whether any other people were riding in this man’s vehicle at the time of the accident.

If you are struggling with emotional and financial losses brought on by the untimely death of a loved one, pursuing wrongful death litigation may be helpful. These types of civil lawsuits may provide peace and a sense of justice to those left to pick up the pieces after a tragic death. Succeeding with such a lawsuit may offer you and your family closure. If you want to gain a better understanding of wrongful death lawsuits, it may be helpful to speak with an attorney.
