    What’s Causing So Many Fatal Teen Driver Accidents?

    Statewide (October 22, 2020) – A survey administered by the Tennessee Highway Safety Office (THSO) is shedding some light on the teen driving behaviors that may be causing a high number of fatal accidents.

    THSO reported that Tennessee car accident fatalities involving a teenage driver increased by 49% from 2015 to 2019. In the survey, 87% of teens admitted to driving over the speed limit on a regular basis. At least 40% said that they don’t wear a seat belt.

    Distracted Driving Caused Nearly 24,000 Crashes in 2019

    Statewide (October 1, 2020) – A recent trend analysis released by the Tennessee Highway Safety Office (THSO) shows that there were 23,760 distracted driving car accidents last year across the state.

    Fortunately, the majority of these accidents were minor and did not result in injuries. But of the more than 5,000 accidents that resulted in serious injuries or death in 2019, distracted driving was a known factor in almost 500 crashes.

    Distracted driving is more than just using a cell phone while driving. It can also mean eating while driving, fiddling with the radio, or any other activity that takes your focus off the road.

    Speed, Impairment Likely Causes of Increased Pedestrian Deaths

    Statewide (September 17, 2020) – Despite decreased traffic during the COVID-19 pandemic, Tennessee traffic fatalities are on the rise according to Tennessee Highway Patrol.

    Overall crashes have decreased since March, but the number of deadly accidents, particularly Tennessee pedestrian accidents, has risen significantly. In Davidson County alone, at least 20 pedestrians have died this year.

    One contributing factor to the uptick in fatalities may be an increase in speeding since there have been fewer cars on the road. Another crucial factor statewide (and across the country) is impairment, with as many as 50% of pedestrian fatalities involving either a driver or pedestrian who had been drinking.

    Man Who Caused Deadly Accident Under Investigation for DUI

    Nashville (August 27, 2020) – Police believe drinking and driving may be to blame for a three-car accident that happened near Bear Hollow Road and Clarksville Pike.

    Speeding, Failure to Yield to Blame for Deadly Motorcycle Crash

    Nashville (August 6, 2020) – A fatal accident occurred last week when a motorcyclist collided with a minivan on Old Hickory Boulevard near Interstate 40.

    Darrell Clark, a 37-year-old man, was riding his motorcycle southbound on Old Hickory at a high rate of speed. The driver of the minivan was attempting to turn left onto the I-40 from the northbound lanes of Old Hickory.

    That driver, 63-year-old Robert Rucker, failed to yield the right of way to Clark. Clark then struck the passenger side of the minivan and died of his injuries, despite wearing a helmet. Police say the motorcycle accident was caused by both Clark’s speeding and Rucker’s failure to yield.

    Cause of Dump Truck Crash Under Investigation

    Erwin, TN (July 16, 2020) – The Road Superintendent of Unicoi County was injured after a dump truck accident yesterday, according to Sheriff Mike Hensley.

    Superintendent Terry Haynes was on Jackson Love Highway in northeastern Tennessee when the bed of the truck became caught on an underpass and flipped. Haynes had to be extricated from the dump truck and sustained two broken ribs along with scrapes and bruises.

    Lack of Safety Harness to Blame for Deadly Construction Accident

    Nashville (June 25, 2020) – General contractor D.F. Chase is under scrutiny by labor rights’ groups following the tragic death of a subcontractor employee at a Nashville construction site.

    Sixteen-year-old Gustavo Ramirez died on Tuesday after falling more than 120 feet from the scaffolding of a construction site he was working at. Reports indicate that he was not wearing a safety harness. 

    According to the Tennessee Occupational Safety and Health Administration (TOSHA), safety harnesses may not always be required in secure scaffolding, but an investigation has been launched.

    Police Say Carelessness Caused Deadly Rear-End Collision

    57-year-old Rhonda Rucker was sitting at a stoplight near Elm Hill Pike and Massman Drive in her SUV when 18-year-old Kevin Coz Camaja struck her from behind in a Ford Mustang. Both vehicles were forced off the road into a ditch, where they caught fire.

    A passenger in the SUV, 37-year-old Craig Marsh, managed to escape the vehicle but was unable to rescue Rucker, who died at the scene. Camaja was transported to the hospital with severe burns, but is reportedly in stable condition. 

    Investigating officers say that Camaja’s “failure to drive with due care” was a likely cause of the accident. Source: The Tennessean

    Tennessee Boating Accidents on the Rise

    Statewide (May 14, 2020) – The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA) is urging boaters to practice good boating safety as fatal accidents continue to rise throughout the state.

    Already this year, 10 lives have been claimed in boating accidents, compared to just 8 in all of 2019.

    The TWRA reported that popular boating spots like Percy Priest Lake were unusually crowded with boaters as COVID-19 stay-at-home restrictions were lifted for the first time in several months. Several rescues were made over the weekend. 

    Common boating accident causes include boating under the influence, unfamiliarity with local waters, inexperience, and not having the proper safety gear (life preservers, fire extinguishers, etc.) onboard.

    Overcrowded lakes also tend to increase the number of Tennessee boating accidents and rescues. Source: News 4 Nashville

    Heavy Rain Likely to Blame for Deadly Motorcycle Crash

    Nashville (April 23, 2020) – Slick road conditions and poor visibility are being blamed for the death of a 61-year-old man who was involved in a Nashville motorcycle accident over the weekend.

    Police say the unidentified man was heading east on I-24 near Old Hickory Boulevard late Friday night when he likely lost control of his motorcycle due to heavy rain and crashed. Officers responded to the accident after midnight and found the motorcyclist had died of his injuries.

    In their investigations, police have reason to believe other motorists may have struck the man after he crashed, but none remained at the scene of the incident.

    At this time it remains unclear whether a hit-and-run was involved or if the motorists did not see the victim. Our legal team would like to remind all drivers to be extra cautious while driving in wet weather conditions. Source: The Tennessean

    Speeding, Inclement Weather Led to Deadly Crash

    Nashville (April 2, 2020) – Police believe that speeding and wet roads were to blame for a single-vehicle car accident in Nashville that killed a 27-year-old man on Tuesday.

    Hermitage resident Joseph Jones was traveling west on I-24 and attempting to merge onto I-40 East. As Jones reached the curve in the road, his car exited the roadway and crashed into a nearby rock wall. Though he was wearing his seat belt at the time of the crash, Jones died at the scene of his injuries.
