School bus crashes into truck, sending it over the median

It is important that drivers in Tennessee follow the traffic laws and pay attention to the road. However, even when drivers do everything they are supposed to do, there are always dangers on the road. This is because of the fact that people cannot control the actions and decisions other drivers make. Sometimes a driver can be doing everything correctly, but still ends up in a car crash and suffers catastrophic injuries because another driver makes a poor decision.

This recently happened to the driver of a pick-up truck. The truck was travelling in the inside lane of traffic on a highway near the center median. A school bus, which had no children on it at the time, initially appeared to be getting off at an exit, but instead veered across all lanes of traffic and struck the pick-up truck. The impact of the collision sent the truck over the center median into oncoming traffic. The driver of the truck had to be extricated from the truck and was brought to the hospital to treat his injuries.

Luckily in this situation, the school bus was empty. Otherwise, there could have been many more injuries. However, this is no consolation for the driver of the truck who is now in the hospital and did not do anything to get into the accident other than being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Unfortunately there are many drivers who find themselves in this situation. These injuries can change people's lives forever and can also be very costly for the victims, especially if they are unable to work afterward.

There are many car accidents on Tennessee roads each day. These accidents vary in severity, but many drivers and passengers in the vehicles end up in the hospital with severe injuries. These victims may want to seek compensation for their injuries. This compensation may not heal any injuries, but it can still be very valuable for the victim as they put their lives back together. Attorneys understand victims' rights and may be able to assist them.
