A 45 year old man driving an ATV was killed on Wednesday after he was struck by a pickup truck near Watertown, just 40 miles outside of Nashville. Tennessee Highway Patrol reports that the 33 year old driver of a Dodge Ram pickup was heading south on Round Top Road when he came up behind the ATV and completely ran over it. The victim was not wearing a helmet and died at the scene. Both men were believed to be under the influence of alcohol at the time of the crash.

Safety precautions should always be taken when driving ATVs recreationally off-road but when blending them in with mainstream motor vehicle traffic, there is even greater risk for hazardous accidents. The risk triples when drivers of traditional cars and trucks act negligently; driving while intoxicated. Often, even wearing a helmet is not enough to save a life when suffering from the reckless impact of a larger vehicle. Families who experience such tragic loss are entitled to be heard by an experienced Nashville lawyer to discuss how they may be compensated for their suffering.
