Vehicle Collision Occurs on Roane State Highway


Vehicle Collision Occurs on Roane State Highway                 

Roane County, TN (November 17, 2020) Law enforcement and emergency medical workers responded to a car crash late on November 17th that occurred on Roane State Highway close to Roane County Park. Law enforcement states that the driver of a Chevy Cruze tried to turn onto Caney Creek Road and entered the path of an oncoming Ford Mustang. The Mustang’s driver is reported to have been potentially injured in the crash. The Chevy’s driver was fortunately able to escape injury, but was later charged with several offenses including driving without insurance, driving on an expired registration, failure to exercise due care, and failure to wear a seatbelt.

The Insurance Information Institute has performed in-depth analysis about uninsured motorists. In one part, the Institute cited the Insurance Research Council which found that in 2015, approximately 13 percent of motor vehicle drivers or one in eight drivers was uninsured. While uninsured motorist coverage is not required in Tennessee, this type of insurance protects drivers as well as passengers if the motorist responsible for a crash has no insurance.

When head-on collisions occur, the results are often devastating because the full force of vehicles is involved. If someone else was responsible for your collision, you can suddenly find yourself facing serious medical injuries without a way to pay for these bills. Fortunately, it is possible to pursue compensation either through an insurance carrier or a court of law.
