Driver, 2 passengers dead in crossover car crash on I-65

Crossover accidents are often the most gruesome to investigate, both in Tennessee and nationwide. When motor vehicles cross over the median and go into oncoming traffic on a busy interstate, horrific crashes are often the outcome. That can be said for the Feb. 23 early morning car crash on Interstate 65 in Sumner County. A car crossed the median and crashed into an oncoming car head-on.     

Negligent driving causes fatal crash of car and tractor trailer

Under Tennessee law, when the driver of a vehicle negligently causes a traffic accident, he or she cannot collect third party tort damages from other operators who were without fault.

That is the case in a fatal accident that occurred recently on Highway 111 when a driver and his passenger were killed in a collision with a tractor trailer.

Of course, hundreds of passengers on trains also die or suffer serious injury from train accidents nationwide each year.
