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.



Man Charged with Vehicular Homicide after Motorcycle Crash

A man was killed in Memphis on Sunday after his motorcycle was struck by a drunk driver. The victim was 21-year-old father Christopher Kinsey III who was riding his motorcycle along Lamar Avenue when a drunk driver struck him.  The drunk driver was identified as 38-year-old Onesimo Gardea who is being charged with a number of crimes including vehicular homicide, driving under the influence, no license, no registration, no insurance, reckless driving and leaving the scene of the accident.  When police eventually caught up with Gardea, they said his speech was slurred and smelled of alcohol.

The thoughts and prayers of our legal team are with the friends and family of Christopher Kinsey III. Unfortunately, tragic accidents such as these happen far too often.  At John Michael Bailey Injury Lawyers, we believe no individual should have to suffer the consequences of another negligent person’s actions. We would like to remind all drivers to be responsible at the wheel and to never drive while intoxicated.



Man charged in vehicular accident that killed one

Police authorities arrested 28-year-old Jeremy Williamson, who had been the driver of the vehicle that veered off the road, crashing into a utility pole. This occurred as the vehicle traveled along Chelsea Avenue at Oakwood Street in Memphis, Tennessee on Saturday, March 26 at around 6:30 p.m., resulting in the death of his passenger, 42-year-old Shannon Vaughn.

According to preliminary investigations, Williamson lost control of the vehicle, causing it to slam into a Memphis Light, Gas and Water utility pole. Williamson was later found to have been under the influence at the time of the crash.

Both Williamson and Vaughn were rushed to a nearby hospital after the accident. Vaughn passed away in the hospital due to mortal injuries; Williamson, on the other hand, sustained critical wounds. Another individual, also a passenger in Williamson’s vehicle, incurred critical injuries and was taken to Regional One Health.

Williamson was charged with multiple offenses including DUI, reckless vehicular homicide, and violation of financial responsibility.



Video of Man Urinating on Kellogg’s Conveyor Belt in Memphis Surfaces

Kellogg’s has confirmed that a viral video of a man urinating on a conveyor belt was taken in their Memphis, Tennessee factory in 2014.  The video was published by the website World Star Hip Hop and showed a man, who may have been an employee of Kellogg’s, urinating on the end of an assembly line and then panning over to a sign featuring the Kellogg’s logo. The company publicly stated that the video was taken in 2014 and that a criminal investigation has begun to find and charge the man featured.  Kellogg’s stated the products that may have been affected include Rice Krispies Treats, Rice Krispies Treats Cereal, and puffed rice cake products.  However, all of these products would now be past their expiration dates.  No suspect has been charged in connection to the video yet.

Coupe, 18-wheeler collision kills one

A teenager was taken to Regional Health One in Memphis, Tennessee after sustaining critical wounds due to a serious two-vehicle collision on Saturday, February 13 at New Allen Road and Whitney Avenue.

Police officials reported the 16-year-old teen, who was not named publicly, had succumbed to mortal injuries at the same hospital she was taken to one day after being admitted.

Major Eddie Bass stated, in an interview with local news channel WREG, that the victim had been a passenger in a small coupe that collided with an 18-wheeler at the Raleigh intersection. He noted that the force of the crash had been significant enough to fold the car like a piece of paper, breaking its windshield and scattering pieces of metal and glass all across the accident site.

Bass added that the driver of the car and the 18-wheeler were also taken to the hospital but are now listed under stable condition.



FDA confirms presence of Listeria in Dole salad products

The FDA recently confirmed that Listeria monocytogenes have been found in packages of Dole Salad and vegetables produced at their Vegetable Inc. plant in Springfield, Ohio. Fifteen people across the United States were infected with Listeriosis after consuming the product, and one patient has died, though the exact cause of death has yet to be confirmed.

Dole announced they were voluntarily recalling all salad and various vegetable packages with product codes that began with an “A” due to the possible threat of Listeria. After the contaminant was confirmed by the FDA, Dole warned consumers to throw out packages with the specific product code or to return the products for a full refund. In total, 23 states and some Canadian provinces were affected by the recall, including Tennessee. The Springfield plant has shut down operations.

Unfortunately, food defects such as these occur far too often.

First ignition switch trial in New York dismissed

On January 12, a Manhattan, New York jury listened to arguments made by Texas personal injury attorney Robert Hilliard on behalf of Oklahoma resident Robert Scheuer, who blamed the critical injuries he sustained in a May 2014 crash on the defective ignition switch in his 2003 Saturn Ion, which he was driving the day of the accident.

Ten days later, the jury dismissed the trial due to allegations from General Motors that Mr. Scheuer lied on the stand in order to exaggerate the injuries he claimed to have sustained in the collision. It became apparent in the course of the trial that Mr. Scheuer had an extensive history of neck and back trouble, and GM argued that this medical past complicated the nature of his personal injury claim.

At John Michael Bailey Injury Lawyers, our legal team represents clients who have suffered at the hands of negligent individuals, be they auto manufacturers who failed to uphold safety standards during production or reckless drivers who cause car accidents on the road. We can work on your behalf to pursue claims against those who harmed you. Call us today at 888-WE-FIGHT to learn more.



Woman dies after getting hit by car in Memphis

A woman lost her life after she was struck by a vehicle at around 2:25 in the early morning hours of Sunday, January 3 along Interstate 40 at Summer Avenue in Memphis, Tennessee. According to preliminary investigations made by the police, the woman had left her vehicle along the side of the road and was hit by another vehicle while attempting to cross the interstate.

The victim was rushed to Regional One hospital on Jefferson Avenue where she succumbed to her injuries.

The driver of the vehicle that struck the victim was identified as an 18-year-old woman, who was cited for not having a license. Apparently the driver had only been issued a driver’s permit. The victim was not publicly identified pending notification of her family.

A second collision occurred shortly after and involved a police officer who was in the process of transporting a prisoner along northbound I-40. Apparently, a second vehicle swerved into the officer’s lane causing his squad car to collide with the rear portion of the vehicle. The driver of the second car left the scene of the collision, and the officer was cited for failure to maintain a safe lookout.



Zatarain’s recalls products overs dairy issue

Zatarain’s is recalling boxes of their Red Beans and Rice Original meals after receiving reports that there may have been a production mistake that lead to these boxes containing undeclared dairy products. The eight ounce boxes marked as Red Beans and Rice, which does not contain dairy, may actually contain a mix for Creamy Parmesan Rice. If one of the millions of Americans with dairy sensitivity or allergies obtains a mislabeled box, he or she may suffer a reaction from the unmarked dairy.

The recall affects nineteen states and the company is urging customers to throw out packages or bring them to the store for a full refund. No illnesses have been reported relating to the mix-up yet.

Pedestrian killed after being struck by two vehicles

A pedestrian was killed along Maynardville Pike in North Cox County in Tennessee on Tuesday, December 1, after being struck by two vehicles. The man was in the southbound lanes of the highway when a Chevrolet pickup truck swerved to miss him. The next vehicle, a Ford F-150 truck, was unable to avoid the collision and struck the man at around 5:55 in the evening. While lying in the street, the pedestrian was then hit again by a Tennessee Highway Patrol Cruiser driven by trooper Adam Bowman while the officer was on his way to a crash scene on Interstate 40.

It is unknown how much time passed between the first and second impact. The body of the victim was transported to the Regional Forensic Center where the autopsy identified the man as 64-year-old Charles Matthews. The scene shut down the highway until 10:00 p.m. Investigators are still working to determine the exact cause of the accident and no charges have been made. No other injuries were reported.
