The three people who were inside the vehicle ran away from the scene, police said. Two of them, a man and a woman, were apprehended a short time later, while another man was taken into custody in a culvert near a wooded area. The woman was injured in the accident and was treated at a hospital before being released.

Police said the car had been stolen out of Nashville and two guns were discovered inside. The three suspects were taken to the Wilson County Jail.

Poor Road Design Responsible for Nashville Car Accidents Along I-40

by Staff Blogger | October 5th, 2015

For months, the legal staff at Ponce Law has been following the story of how poor engineering and design of a stretch of I-40 near Mt. Juliet has been responsible for dozens of motor vehicle collisions in the area. Just take a look at one of our previous posts on the subject.

Now, there’s data to support the suspicions that many Middle Tennesseans have about this stretch of road. According to The Tennessean, the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) has analyzed data and determined that the team that designed the stretch of road failed to adequately consider storm water runoff. Furthermore, TDOT says the road isn’t designed to handle the runoff it receives.

When a storm occurs, water can pool along the stretch of highway between Mt. Juliet Road and State Route 109. So far, the pooling water on I-40 has been responsible for at least 30 Mt. Juliet car accidents.

The findings were given to the company responsible for a recent road widening project that led to the issues, and the company stated they will be cooperative in addressing the problems.

At Ponce Law, we know just how dangerous a poor road design can be to motorists. That’s why our Nashville car accident lawyers applaud the efforts being made to correct this particular stretch of road and hope changes to the road’s design can be made soon.
