Woman, Child Killed in Pulaski Car Accident

According to WSMV NBC 4, a 33-year-old woman and a 5-year-old girl were killed in a car accident on January 11 in Pulaski.

It was a single-vehicle accident, according to Tennessee Highway Patrol officials, and happened just before 2 p.m. on Crescent View Drive. THP officials stated that the 33-year-old driver veered off the road for unknown reasons. After leaving the road, the driver over-corrected, causing the car to re-enter and travel across Crescent View, collide with a tree and burst into flames.

Both the woman and a 5-year-old girl riding in the car were killed in the wreck. A 6-year-old girl also in the vehicle sustained non-life threatening injuries in the crash.

A THP investigation into this accident was still ongoing at the time of this report.

A Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) study found that over the course of one year, more than 618,000 0 to 12-year-old children rode vehicles without the use of a child safety seat or booster seat or a seat belt at least some of the time. This statistic highlights the fact that even though fatal car accidents are a leading cause of death among children in the United States, many of these deaths may have been prevented through the use of proper safety precautions.
