Truck driver and company sued after fatal crash


Knoxville residents place a great deal of trust in the people they deal with on an everyday basis. This is not only true in more intimate settings like at home and in the office, but also out in public.

Unfortunately, that often turns out not to be the case, as other drivers can make serious mistakes that endanger the lives of everyone else on the road.

All Knoxville residents must follow the rules of the road when they are driving.
