No matter how much experience someone has behind the wheel, they still may not be able to anticipate the foolish negligence of another driver and become involved in a car accident. In Knox County recently, a 21-year-old man was driving on Maryville Pike when he tried to pass another vehicle. As he drove into the oncoming traffic to pass, the man drove head on into another vehicle causing a car accident. The accident happened on a Tuesday just before noon.
The 21-year-old man drove into a Ford Explorer driven by a 60-year-old man that had a 65-year-old passenger in the vehicle with him. The pair from the Ford was taken in to UT Medical Center for treatment. Police reported all three people involved in the crash were wearing their seatbelts, which possibly prevented a fatality.
