Two Individuals Sustain Injuries Accident on Highway 70 in Cumberland County, Tennessee


November 02, 2019

CUMBERLAND COUNTY, TN – According to an online news report at 1057news.com, a two-vehicle accident occurred on the 9800 block of Highway 70 North late last week that caused two individuals to sustain injuries.*

The accident occurred in Cumberland County, Tennessee.  According to the Tennessee Highway Patrol, a 2006 Toyota that was operated by a 61-year-old man from Crossville, crossed the center line and slammed head-on into a 2016 Kia Soul that was driven by a 49-year-old woman from Cookeville, Tennessee. Both drivers sustained injuries in the accident.  The 61-year-old is facing a charge of failure to exercise due care.  

Head-on crashes are likely the most dangerous type of accidents as a result of the force of the impact sustained by both drivers.  Unlike other crashes, head-on collisions involve two vehicles that crash into one another.  Per nationwide statistics, only two percent of accidents are head-on collisions however, they account for over ten percent of all driving deaths.  The most common types of injuries that occur in a head-on collision include brain injuries, bone fractures, spinal injuries, spinal cord injuries, and catastrophic injuries such as burns and traumatic amputations.  

In general, head-on crashes are often caused by distracted driving, driver negligence, speeding or reckless driving behavior such as driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol.
