Posted on Tuesday, August 26th, 2014   

A lawsuit has been filed seeking damages in relation to the death of Ashley Lawson, 18, who was killed in a Hawkins County truck accident on August 5, WJHL reported on August 13.

A southbound semi-truck attempted to take a left onto Sneedville Pike, realized the turn was impossible, and tried to turn back. This is when the 60-year-old driver, Ion Hazapariu, hit Lawson’s northbound car head-on. Two of her passengers, including an 8-month-old child, were injured.

The lawsuit demands compensation for physical pain, emotional suffering, medical and funerary expenses, in addition to the potential lifetime wages lost. Both Hazapariu and his employer, Yes Express, Inc., were named on the suit.

$3M awarded to accident victims in Rutherford County

Posted on Friday, July 11th, 2014   

A jury in Rutherford County recently awarded almost $3 million in damages to one permanently injured and the estate of one deceased car accident victim, the Murfreesboro Post reported on July 4.

John Jackson, in his early 80’s, died several days after the accident happened. Scott Summerville, a 57-year-old Nashville resident, suffered permanent injuries from the accident.

The car accident happened in July 2011 along Interstate 24 near the Sam Ridley Parkway exit in Smyrna when Owensboro, Kentucky resident Mildred Payne lost control over his Toyota Camry. He veered off the roadway, slammed into a sign, crossed the median, and finally crashed into Jackson’s 2000 Mercedes Benz, which was headed east on I-24. Summerville was driving Jackson’s Mercedes Benz when the crash happened. All of the blame from the personal injury and wrongful death suits was placed on Payne.

On Friday, April 11 Theresa Davis, 52, of Knox County died in a collision between a car and a train. Her husband, Jack Davis, 58, remains in serious condition from the accident.

The couple was crossing the railroad tracks at Ball Camp Road when their Chevy Equinox was struck by an oncoming train. People familiar with the area mentioned that the railroad crossing in question does not have sufficient signaling.
