Tennessee couple killed in deadly collision

An accident in Lawrenceburg on March 17 involving a motorcycle and several cars resulted in two fatalities and several injuries. The car accident occurred around 5:30 p.m. near David Crockett State Park east of Ezell Drive.

According to authorities, a motorcycle with a rider and passenger that had stopped or slowed with the flow of eastbound traffic on Highway 64 was struck from behind by a SUV. The force of the crash sent both vehicles into the westbound lane, where they collided head-on with another vehicle. 

The passengers on the motorcycle, a 66-year-old man and his 62-year-old wife, were killed. The driver of the SUV, a 35-year-old woman also from Lawrenceburg, was transported to Vanderbilt Hospital via helicopter. Two people in the third vehicle, a 18-year-old women and a 21-year-old man, were transported to Crockett Hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. The accident is still under investigation.

The families of those who were killed or injured may be preoccupied with making final arrangements or monitoring the condition of their loved ones in addition to dealing with grief or other intense emotions. However, eventually, the families involved will want to know how and why the accident occurred, if not just for the sake of closure, but to determine if the accident could have been prevented. In accidents where negligence is involved, impacted families have the right to seek compensation for expenses and mental anguish. An experienced personal injury attorney can assist those who have suffered losses with understanding the legal process and help them receive compensation for medical expenses and other costs.
