Crossover car crash takes 2 lives, alcohol impairment suspected

In Tennessee and everywhere else, it is often difficult to know what causes car accidents where a driver loses control of a vehicle and goes off the road into a ditch, tree or other obstruction. This often happens at curves in the road where driving too fast may prevent a driver from handling a change in road patterns. Another common instance of losing control and causing a car crash is when a driver crosses over the center line and heads directly into traffic that is approaching in the opposite direction.
