According to WTVF-TV, four people were injured on September 12 in a three-vehicle accident in Clarksville. The station reported that the crash occurred around 10:15 a.m., at Dunbar Cave Road and Warfield Boulevard.
Police told WTVF that Ulysses Parker was driving a Cadillac CTS southbound on Warfield Boulevard when he crossed over into the northbound lanes. Parker’s vehicle struck a Kia Rio, and the impact spun the Cadillac into an oncoming GMC Envoy.
WTVF reported that LifeFlight took Parker and the driver of the Kia, Lee Johnsonbaugh, to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville for personal injuries. Johnsonbaugh’s wife, Sandra, along with the driver of the Envoy, Steven Wilson, had to be transported via ambulance to the Gateway Medical Center in Clarksville for injuries.
The accident remains under investigation. Wrong-way driving is often the result of driving while intoxicated or medical emergencies. In either case, a driver who negligently travels into oncoming traffic can be held liable for injuries sustained by other drivers and passengers.
Catastrophic injuries sustained in car accidents like amputation, broken bones, traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries often require extensive physical therapy and rehabilitation, which can be expensive. If you are ever injured in a car accident, you should seek compensation.
