Driver Avoids Injury in Single Vehicle Crash in Crossville
Crossville, TN (April 9, 2021) A driver was fortunately able to avoid injuries in a single vehicle crash on April 9th that occurred in Cumberland County. Law enforcement states that the driver was operating a Chevrolet Silverado and was traveling east when the front driver’s side wheel came off the vehicle. The Chevy then left the road, entered the median, and collided. The driver was wearing his belt at the time of the accident. An investigation of the crash is ongoing.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has found that seat belts reduce the risk of passenger vehicle occupant deaths by 45%. Many of these accidents, like this one, involve motor vehicles that failed to operate as expected. If you suddenly lose control of your vehicle, you should make sure to keep your hands on the steering wheel and avoid slamming on the brakes. Following the blowout or loss of a tire, you should only exit your vehicle if you are entirely positive that you are fully out of harm’s way.
