Deputy recruit allegedly left scene of fatal crash

An FBI task force is looking into whether a hit-and-run that left two people dead in 2013 may have been caused by a man who was a deputy recruit at a Tennessee training academy. On July 24, police visited the Shelby County sheriff's training academy and took a 24-year-old man into custody on suspicion of hitting two people and leaving the scene of the fatal crash.

A man was killed in a head-on collision in Rutherford County shortly before 6:30 a.m. on June 25. The collision took place in the 4200 block of Lascassas Pike, which is near Shady Lane. Investigators say that the driver who allegedly caused the crash will likely face charges since she was apparently under the influence of drugs. She was also tested for alcohol intoxication.

The loss of a loved one in a car accident is always difficult. In addition to the pain associated with losing someone special, friends and relatives must take care of hospital bills, funeral expenses and several other concerns. To help people find their way through this troubling time, it is possible for them to pursue a wrongful death case. This takes into account the nature of the accident and assigns liability to one or more parties.

Losing a loved one can be devastating. It can be even harder to accept if their death comes at the hands of a negligent or irresponsible driver. When fatal accidents occur, determining responsibility is sometimes a difficult and emotionally taxing experience. However, it is often a necessary step for families seeking closure about an incident. A recent crash in Tennessee left two dead and another critically injured.

Losing a loved one in a motor vehicle accident is devastating. Those involved in severe collisions are left searching for answers. What happened leading up to the accident? Was there anything that could have been done to prevent the deadly turn of events? Although there are sometimes no easy answers to these questions, fatal accidents can often be attributed to the negligence of another driver on the road. In these cases, the family of a deceased person may be entitled to compensation to help them through the difficult times ahead. 

Driver negligence, not car problem, led to fatal Tennessee crash

Vehicle wrecks happen every day on Tennessee roads and some of them result in serious injuries and death. Many of these fatal accidents are avoidable. Any time a crash causes the death of a driver or passenger in a vehicle, police investigate the scene to determine the cause of the accident. This information is later used to determine liability. If negligence such as drunk driving is found to have contributed to the wreck, the incident could become a wrongful death case.

Areas of road construction can be high-risk for motor vehicle accidents. A fatal accident in Tennessee proved that last week. In Jefferson County, a 22-year-old man died after a collision with a semi-truck. The accident occurred on I-40 and involved an area of road construction and slowed vehicles. Authorities are still evaluating the details of the fatal crash.
