Two people are dead after a head-on collision in Robertson County. It happened around 7:30 p.m. Thursday night on Highway 49 outside of Springfield. According to the Tennessee Highway Patrol, one of the vehicles ran over the curb into oncoming traffic. Both drivers were killed, and a small child was also injured in the accident and taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center. The child’s age or condition was not known.
In my experience dealing with catastrophic car accidents such as these, it’s imperative that a representative of the small child or the drivers’ estates seek a qualified attorney immediately. Vehicles are often destroyed not long after an accident in which the car is totaled, destroying with it valuable evidence which will help determine who or what was at fault. While there are a lot of unknowns in this case with only a vague police report, an accident attorney is invaluable in terrible situations like these.
Just like you can’t unring a bell, you can’t undestroy evidence.
My thoughts and prayers are with victims in both vehicles, and I hope the small child recovers fully.
