Cumberland County, TN (January 16, 2021) First responders in Cumberland County responded to the scene of an accident on January 16th that occurred on Plateau Road closed to Linder Loop. Law enforcement states that the driver of a FedEx vehicle was traveling west when he lost control of his vehicle as a result of snow and ice on the road. The van then slid into a ditch and turned onto its side. The driver was subsequently transported by ambulance to Cumberland Medical Center for the treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have found that motor vehicle crashes are the 1st or 2nd leading cause of death in every major industry. Statistics compiled by the agency found that in 2018, 1,276 workers in the United States died in work-related crashes. FedEx as well as UPS and other delivery drivers are susceptible to nearly all of the other factors that cause motor vehicle accidents including reckless driving, failure to obey traffic regulations, operating vehicles while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and distracted driving.
