Metro police provided details of a three-vehicle accident that occurred early in the morning on Monday, August 31, that allegedly involved a motorist running a stop sign.
Van Broadsides Car
Authorities say that a 1995 Chevrolet Corvette was southbound on Appleton Drive at about 6:50 a.m. When the 58-year-old male motorist reached Elm Hill Pike, he allegedly failed to obey the stop sign.
A 2015 Ford van that was westbound on Elm Hill Pike then broadsided the Corvette on the driver’s side. Finally, both vehicles careened into the path of an eastbound 2005 Chrysler Sebring, according to WKRN News.
Injuries and Loss of Life Reported
Emergency personnel transported the driver of the Corvette to Vanderbilt University Medical Center for treatment of life-threatening injuries. However, he died at the hospital. His passenger also required transport to the same hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
There was no initial report of any injuries to occupants of the Ford van or the Chrysler. Metro police continue to investigate the accident.
Although the investigation into this multi-vehicle crash is ongoing, victims of certain wrecks do have recourse in the Tennessee civil courts. When it is reasonable to claim that negligent conduct led to the injuries sustained, it is possible for an injured victim to seek compensation for various losses, including unpaid medical bills, pain-and-suffering and lost wages.
