Fatality Reported Following Car Crash on Highway 111
Putnam County, TN (January 30, 2021) The Tennessee Highway Patrol responded to a deadly crash that occurred on Highway 111 on the evening of January 30th in Putnam County. The report provided by law enforcement states that the driver of a Toyota Tacoma was traveling on the highway when his vehicle exited the road, went down an embankment, and collided with a tree. The driver was later pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. Law enforcement states that the driver was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the collision.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety reports that among all of the deadly car crashes that occurred in 2018, 53% of these accidents involved single-vehicle crashes. Just because a single vehicle crash occurs, however, does not mean that someone else is not responsible for the crash. Some examples of single-vehicle crashes in which another party might be found liable include crashes in which parts fly off of other vehicles, crashes due to improperly designed or inadequately maintained roads, those that result from vehicle defects, and hit and run accidents.
