Tennessee woman dies in truck accident

Most drivers would agree that driving on the interstate or any major highway can be risky. Drivers could face a number of obstacles beyond their control that could lead to a crash. Depending on the severity of the accident, individuals could suffer serious or even fatal injuries. A recent truck accident claimed the life of a 21-year-old Tennessee woman.

The crash took place on a state highway on a recent Tuesday morning. Authorities arrived at the scene and conducted a preliminary investigation into the crash. Police say that a woman was headed in the eastbound direction on SR 840 when the driver of a semi veered into her lane for unknown reasons. The impact resulted in the driver’s seat being ejected from her vehicle.

The semi’s driver was unhurt in the crash. Regrettably, the young woman died at the scene. Although authorities have not filed charges, citations and criminal charges are expected against the driver of the semi-truck. No further details about the crash were reported.

The deceased woman’s family is surely grief-stricken due to this tragic truck accident. Apart from any criminal proceedings against the semi driver, both the driver and the driver’s employer could face a civil claim for wrongful death. The young victim’s family retains the right to file a claim seeking financial redress as a result of the fatal crash. The civil court system in Tennessee typically adjudicates these types of claims based upon evidence of negligence that is found to have caused or materially contributed to an accident and resulting death.
