Oak Ridge, TN (March 12, 2021) A woman was taken to a hospital with injuries on March 12th after she crashed her vehicle close to the west end entrance portal of Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has found that in 2019, 53% of motor vehicle crash fatalities were single vehicle crashes. One of the most common myths about single vehicle crashes is that they are always the fault of the driver. In reality, however, various other parties besides the driver can be responsible for single vehicle crashes including repairmen who perform maintenance work on the vehicle, manufacturers who create the vehicle, and even other drivers who speed off following crashes.
