Life is very unpredictable. One minute you are working and engaging in things you do on a daily basis and the next, you are faced with tragedy and/or loss. Sadly, these unexpected moments arise in many people’s lives with no clear sign they were ever coming. It appears one of these unfortunate moments recently occurred in Tennessee and involved a husband and wife who had just left their cousins funeral.
According to the Tennessean, a husband and wife were headed home from a family member’s funeral in their vintage 1968 Chevrolet Camaro around 6:00 p.m. As the two made their way down Cato Road, just north of Ashland City Highway, Northwest of Nashville, they began traveling at an excessive rate of speed and crashed into a rock wall located to the right of the roadway. Investigators stated that while there were signs that the driver attempted to brake, the car wasn’t able to slow in time to avoid colliding with the rock wall.
When medics arrived, they transported the two to Vanderbilt University Medical Center and that is where they were pronounced dead. Despite the fact that the couple were wearing their seatbelts, because of the age of the vehicle, it was only equipped with lap belts and no airbags. Sadly, the two left behind two daughters.
Although investigators believe the excessive speed was the main cause of the accident, the truth is, fatal accidents similar to this occur for various reasons leaving families broken and without their loved ones.
