Driver Avoids Injury after Cumberland County Crash
Cumberland County, TN (January 16, 2021) A motor vehicle driver avoided injury following a car crash that occurred on January 18th on Bud Tanner Road close to Wolf Creek Road. The report provided by law enforcement states that the driver of a Chevy Silverado was going down a steep hill while the road was covered in snow. As a result of the weather and road conditions, the driver lost control of his vehicle while navigating a curve and ran off the road. The truck then went down an embankment and collided with several trees before coming to a stop. Both the Chevy’s driver and passenger were wearing seat belts at the time of the collision.
The Federal Highway Administration has found that approximately 70 percent of the United States population lives in snowy regions where roads become covered with snow and ice each year and are difficult to navigate. Both snow and ice reduce friction and subsequently vehicle maneuverability, which causes slower speeds, reduced roadway capacity, and increases the risk of accidents. Each year, approximately 24 percent of weather-related crashes occur on snowy or icy roads and 15 percent of these crashes occur during snow or sleet.
