Couple sues for detective's crash into living room

Imagine sitting in your own living room, lounging on a love seat and watching TV -- and then a pickup truck crashes into the room, pinning you under debris. That's what happened to a LaFollette woman last year, causing her to suffer injuries. She and her husband are claiming the detective who caused the crash, along with his fellow officers, tried to cover what happened in the car accident. Now they're suing the Campbell County Sheriff's Office.

Rollover crash leaves five high school students injured

Driving at a high rate of speed without wearing a seat belt can be an unfortunate combination. Speed may have been a factor in a rollover crash that left five Anderson County High School students injured yesterday afternoon, according to the Tennessee Highway Patrol.

Officer injured in Pigeon Forge motorcycle crash

The details are still sketchy at this point, but one thing is for certain: A Pigeon Forge Police Department motorcycle officer suffered injuries in a crash over the weekend after a collision with a van.

There might be a reason people get grumpy about losing an hour of sleep as we "spring forward" with Daylight Savings Time. While an hour might not seem like a huge difference, the shift in sunlight can upset a person's circadian rhythm. And that, believe it or not, can lead to car accidents and other potential mishaps.

Charges may be pending in crash that injured motorcyclist

When motorists don't react quickly enough to traffic conditions, such as abrupt starts and stops, serious accidents can occur. When accidents like that involve motorcyclists, riders are particularly vulnerable to injuries. With minimal equipment to protect them, they are at risk if they are involved in crashes with multiple vehicles. A three-vehicle accident that left a motorcyclist in critical condition in Tennessee is currently being investigated, and charges may be pending against one of the drivers.

Changes to Tennessee helmet law left behind

It's a question debated by motorcyclists and safety advocates alike: Should motorcycle riders have a choice when it comes to wearing a helmet? A recent bill that would have ended helmet laws for those over 21 was withdrawn by state lawmakers this week.
