Tragic car accident leaves 1 woman dead in Louisville

No one goes out for a drive expecting to get involved in a serious accident -- especially not an accident that claims the lives of the driver or any passengers. Nevertheless, fatal automobile collisions are common in Tennessee, and many of them are the result of driver negligence, recklessness or unlawfulness. One of the most deadly causes of car accidents, for example, is drunk driving.

One such fatal drunk driving accident happened on a recent Friday evening. The crash resulted in the death of a 28-year-old woman from Blount County. The woman was driving her car at approximately 9:30 p.m., in Louisville, Tennessee, along Topside Road when the collision occurred.

According to the Tennessee Highway Patrol, a 41-year-old man who was driving a truck on the opposite side of the road lost control of his vehicle, crossed the center lane of traffic and collided with the woman's vehicle head-on. Tragically, the 28-year-old Blount County woman didn't survive the collision. Both the 41-year-old driver of the truck and his 25-year-old passenger survived the collision.

Police say that the 41-year-old was drinking when the crash happened and that criminal charges against him are likely forthcoming.Were you injured in a drunk driving accident, or was your family member killed in such a crash? Following a fatal drunk driving crash in Tennessee, surviving close family members of those who are killed -- and others who were injured in the accident -- may want to investigate all the facts surrounding the collision. By fully understanding the facts at hand -- in addition to Tennessee criminal and civil law -- victims and surviving family members can determine their legal rights and options.
