Deadly Murfreesboro accident claims the lives of 2 teenagers

Whenever a teenager's life is cut short in a senseless car accident, it sends shockwaves through the community. Schoolmates, teachers, parents, family and friends will suffer and grieve over the loss.

Recently, a fatal motor vehicle accident like this happened in Rutherford County. The collision -- which happened at around 3:30 in the morning -- claimed the lives of two teenagers. At this time, police are unsure what series of events may have caused the crash, and they don't know who was to blame.

Both of the teenagers who died were male. They were classmates at Blackman High School. Their fellow students, friends and family attended a vigil at Murfreesboro's The Experience Church on the Saturday following the fatal incident. A vigil was also held at Blackman High School in honor of the deceased.

Although little has been revealed about this accident, we do know that the vehicle involved had to be pulled out of a creek. A tow truck was seen removing the car from the water at around 8:00 a.m. on the morning after the incident. Witnesses also observed a LifeFlight helicopter close to the accident scene. The helicopter was used to transport the surviving victims to Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

As more information is revealed regarding this crash, the injured victims and close family members of the deceased will be able to determine if they can pursue personal injury and wrongful death claims. For example, the accident victims who survived might have strong claims to seek financial compensation relating to the costs of their medical care, the extent of their pain and suffering and other damages.
