Iconic performer Dolly Parton was injured along with two others in a Nashville car accident on October 21. Parton, 67, was a passenger in an SUV driven by Judy Ogle, 68, that was traveling eastbound on Kirkwood Avenue when a car driven by Diane Lish, 64, pulled into the intersection and collided with the SUV. According to authorities, the initial investigation shows that Lish failed to yield.
Parton and Ogle were taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center for injuries. Lish was taken to Centennial Medical Center, also for injuries sustained in the accident. All parties, at the time of this report, were expected to make a full recovery.
According to the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security, more than 150,000 traffic accidents occur in the state every year, which is about 500 crashes per day. Only five years in the past 50 have had fewer than 1,000 people die in fatal car accidents.
Injuries from traffic accidents can cause paralysis, deformities, and other injuries that could require long-term care or lifelong rehabilitation. When a loved one is injured in a car accident, they and their family may suffer serious physical, emotional and financial strain. Tough times such as this can cause faith to waiver, but Nashville injury attorney Stanley Davis is dedicated to helping these victims get back on their feet and get the justice they deserve. He represents clients injured in drunk driving accidents, hit-and-runs, distracted driving accidents, bus and truck collisions, and motorcycle, pedestrian and bicycle accidents.
“He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” –Revelation 21:4
