by Ponce Law | September 21st, 2020

GREENBRIER, TN – The driver of an SUV went off the road and crashed in Robertson County last week, the Smokey Barn News reported.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol along with county and local first responders were on the scene of the accident on Distillery Road in Greenbrier.  It happened at about 1 p.m. Thursday when investigators say the driver lost control while going around a curve near a bridge. The vehicle skidded, went off the road and rolled down an embankment before landing on its roof.

Fortunately the young couple inside the vehicle were able to escape without injury. A field sobriety test determined that the driver was not impaired at the time.

The crash shut down Distillery Road for about an hour while the vehicle was removed and the TSP conducted their investigation.

Crash alert: Authorities report rise in fatal crashes in Tennessee

by Ponce Law | September 10th, 2020

NASHVILLE, TN – Authorities are reporting a rise in the number of fatal crashes in Tennessee this year, according to WKRN.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol said the increase is occurring even though the volume of traffic on the roads has been reduced in 2020 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The THP said that while the total number of crashes is lower, those that happen are resulting in more deaths. So far this year 20 pedestrians have been killed in Davidson County alone.

The Governor’s Highway Safety Association noted statistics showing the percentage of fatalities involving SUVs and pedestrians is up over 80% the past few years.

The GHSA said the speed of drivers and the size of vehicles such as pickup trucks and SUVs may be contributing factors in the increase in traffic fatalities.  The organization said improved infrastructure on the state’s roadways, including narrowing lanes and adding more crosswalks, could help save lives.

About half of the fatal crashes involving pedestrians across the country are believed to involve impairment on the part of either the driver or the pedestrian.
