Two Killed in Nashville Accident
Nashville, TN (July 11, 2020) Two people in Nashville were killed in a single vehicle crash that occurred Saturday morning at 5 a.m. near Edmondson Pike close to Nippers Corner. An investigation revealed that the driver was operating his Mustang South on Edmondson Pike when the vehicle left the side of the road for an unknown reason.
The vehicle then struck the end of a guardrail, passed through a ravine, and finally came to a stop on its roof. Both driver and passenger were wearing seat belts at the time of the accident. Law enforcement has also reported that neither alcohol nor drugs are believed to have played a role in the collision.
Situations Where Other Drivers Might Be Liable for a Single Vehicle Accident
Even though a single vehicle is involved in an accident, this does not mean that the injured party or their loved ones will not be able to hold someone else accountable for the resulting damage. Some examples include:
- If another driver’s negligence causes an accident, this driver can still be found liable for injuries even if there was never a collision.
- Sometimes, hit and run accidents occur and the driver who caused the accident flees the scene before law enforcement arrives.
- If an accident occurs due to a defective or faulty vehicle, it might be possible to initiate a claim against the vehicle manufacturer. One of the best ways to determine if your vehicle is subject to a recall is to perform a Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) search in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s lookup page.
