The woman who lost her life in the crash was 84 years old.

The details of this Tennessee crash, including the reason that it happened, are as of yet unclear. However, it may have occurred due to driver negligence or one of several other factors that often surround such unfortunate events. In such cases, police often are able to assess fault to one of the drivers involved in a crash. In accidents like this one where a woman was killed, if driver negligence was a factor in the crash that caused her death, her family may have the option to take legal recourse. A civil claim may be filed by her family in an attempt to compensate them for their losses, both financially and otherwise.
