Crash Occurs in Crossville Close to Martin Elementary
Crossville, TN (January 5, 2021) A crash is reported to have occurred in the afternoon of January 5th on Miller Bypass close to Martin Elementary. Motorists are advised to exercise caution while passing through the area. Additional details about the crash including whether anyone was injured or killed, what caused the crash, and the extent of the property damage involved remain uncertain.
In 2020, the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security reports that 18 accidents occurred in Cumberland County involving fatalities, 222 crashes involving injuries, and 647 collisions resulting in property damage only. Accidents that occur close to school zones include several unique dangers. For one, children are more likely to end up impacted by crashes. This can create additional complications because children are unable to represent themselves in court, which means that a resulting lawsuit must be pursued by a parent, guardian, or other representative. Because these accidents are close to school and speed zones that require motorists to slow down, speed is often an issue in these accidents.
