Truck accident leaves Tennessee pedestrian dead


Semi-trucks play an important part in our economy. They haul groceries, electronics and construction goods across the country.

There is good news for Tennessee's motorists. Data released by the Department of Safety and Homeland Security shows traffic fatalities decreased 2.7 percent in 2013, down to 988 fatalities compared to the 1,015 that occurred in 2012. This is only the fourth time in 50 years that traffic fatalities dipped below 1,000 in a given year. The Tennessee Highway Patrol attributes some of the decrease to its targeting of drunk drivers, yet, the fact remains that there are still too many deaths on Tennessee's roadways.
