Three cars were involved in a collision on an interstate in Tennessee. The incident occurred on Oct. 25 in the morning as the vehicles passed through Memphis going east.

Tennessee police believe that one vehicle, a silver Kia, had pulled over to the side of eastbound I-240 near the Lamar Overpass. They suspect that the man driving the Kia was trying to check and see if one of the tires had popped. A black Chevrolet Impala then struck the vehicle from behind, causing a large collision that scattered debris over the roadway and sent the Impala crashing into a third vehicle, a Nissan.

The man in the Kia was ejected from his vehicle and killed. The woman driving the Impala also suffered fatal wounds. The crash knocked the Impala off the road and down an embankment, but the people inside the vehicle reported only minor injuries.

The family of anyone who has been killed in an accident may choose to seek financial compensation by filing a wrongful death lawsuit against any person or organization that shares in the responsibility for the fatal incident. In the case of an automobile accident, the responsible parties may include the driver, the manufacturer or installer of any car part that caused an unexpected mechanical defect, or any other individual who may be demonstrably at fault. The guidance of an attorney may be of assistance to the family as they complete the necessary legal formalities and present the liable parties with a civil suit against them. The attorney might also be able to provide representation for the family in any necessary negotiations with the defendants or appearances before a court.
