Two Fort Campbell soldiers were in a motorcycle crash on Saturday, June 13. The accident occurred at about 1:39 a.m., as a group of motorcycles were westbound on Tiny Town Road near Tara Boulevard.
According to the authorities, a motorcycle operated by a 24-year-old male collided with another motorcycle operated by another 24-year-old male. Both men sustained injuries that resulted in both being airlifted to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, as reported by Clarksville Online.
Although both men received treatment at the medical center, one did not survive. The other motorcyclist sustained serious injuries, but hospital personnel reported that he is in stable condition.
Authorities Seek Witnesses
The investigation is ongoing, and the circumstances under which the two motorcycles collided were not revealed at the onset. Investigators sought witnesses that might offer additional information about the fatal crash.
Although the investigation into this particular incident is not complete, victims in motorcycle accidents do have recourse in the state’s civil courts when it is possible to reasonably claim that another person’s negligence caused or contributed to the injuries. It is often possible to seek compensation for unpaid medical bills, pain-and-suffering and lost wages. When a death occurs, it is often possible for survivors to seek monetary damages for burial expenses and loss of companionship.
