Single-vehicular accident: one dead, one hurt
An individual lost his life while another is fighting to survive after sustaining critical injuries when the car they were riding along Raleigh Lagrange Road and Chiswood Street in Memphis, Tennessee on Friday, April 16 went over the curb, struck a utility pole, and was cut in half.
25-year-old Quinton Jones was found dead at the scene of the accident, police said. Both he and his companion were thrown out of the vehicle and onto the road when their vehicle crashed.
The other victim, identified only as a 23-year-old man, was taken to the Regional Medical Center for the treatment of his grave wounds.
Police investigators have yet to determine who was the driver of the vehicle at the time of the incident and, therefore, have yet to place any charges. They are still collecting evidence to find out what caused the accident in the first place.
