A near fatal crash happened Tuesday afternoon in Tennessee, at the intersection of Bridge Burners Boulevard and U.S. 11E when a semi truck and vehicle collided. The accident happened as Angela Potter-McIntosh and her husband were traveling though the intersection, when they saw the semi approaching, yet not stopping. Sadly, Mrs. Potter-McIntosh suffered a broken neck from the crash, and her husband had a detached retina from hitting the windshield. Mrs. Potter-McIntosh also claims the collision was a "freak accident" as well realizing there was not much either of the drivers could do. The identity and condition of the semi driver has not been released. Typically weather conditions have been attributed to the cause of crashes at the intersections, yet Tuesday during this accident the conditions were clear and dry.
Furthermore, the intersection in which the crash happened is notorious for fatal accidents, and namely those involving tractor-trailers as well. Likewise, the intersection has recently seen more than three safety improvements, and with the latest accident, it raises concerns that more measures need to be set in place. For instance, many believe that traffic signals could play an important role in helping combat fatal accidents due to the amount of heavy traffic involving tractor-trailers that goes in and out of the intersection.
