Nashville Automobile Accident Attorney Takes A Look At A Tennessee Police Chase Crash

Police Chase Crash

Maybe it’s just me, but as an experienced Nashville automobile accident attorney, I don’t think it’s a smart idea when you are wanted by the police, on felony warrants, in Nashville, Dickson County, Georgia and Maryland, to go through a small town like Millersville, Tennessee at a high rate of speed, several times the speed limit, with a woman passenger hanging out of the car yelling for help.

According to a report on the website of Nashville TV station WSMV, that’s exactly what happened on Saturday last. It appears that 47-year-old Michael DeLoach had been spending time with a female friend. When she decided that she had had all the fun she wanted to have, she asked him to let her out of the car. He wouldn’t, and he took off.

A Millersville PD officer gave chase and then realized from her actions that he had a kidnapping and hostage situation on his hands and called for assistance. The chase lasted for some time and took police through three communities before it came to an end when Mr. DeLoach crashed into a vehicle containing a family of five in front of Cornerstone Church on Old Hickory Blvd.

The father is in serious condition at Vanderbilt Hospital. The mother and three children were taken to Skyline with non-life-threatening injuries. My prayers go out to the injured man and his family. I have often written in my Blog “The Tennessee Auto Accident Attorney” about the need to stay vigilant at all times when you are on the road. I doubt, with the way Mr. DeLoach was driving, there was anything the father could have done to avoid being hit by this manic, but the lesson here is that you never known when danger lurks,

Michael Deloach is currently locked up in the Sumner County Jail charged with kidnapping and evading arrest, and many other charges.  If you or a loved one is injured or killed by a driver in a Tennessee police chase accident you need an experienced Nashville automobile attorney to help you navigate your way through the minefield of liability issues, that’s why you should call the experienced Tennessee automobile accident attorney’s at Phillip Miller & Associates for a free consultation to learn about your rights and remedies.
