Driver Arrested for DUI on Interstate 40

Legal8

Knoxville, TN (February 19, 2021) A driver was arrested for driving under the influence after crashing on Interstate 40 West on the night of January 19th. Law enforcement reports that the driver struck a guardrail on the highway, which caused the vehicle to flip onto its hood. Police responded to the crash around 11:25 at night just before the Interstate 640 East ramp. Besides the driver, a passenger was in the car at the time of the accident and was sent to the University of Tennessee Medical Center for possible injuries. A detailed accident investigation of the crash is pending and it remains uncertain what caused the driver to lose control of his vehicle.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has found that each day in the United States approximately 30 individuals die in drunk-driving crashes. While these deaths have fallen by a third in the last three decades, drunk driving still results in more than 10,000 lost lives annually.
