Drugged Driving Leading Cause of Road Deaths
AP Friday September 30, 2016

Drugged driving has overtaken drunken and distracted driving as a factor in Tennessee traffic fatalities.
Citing an analysis of Tennessee Highway Patrol data, The Tennessean reports the number of deaths from crashes with drug-impaired drivers leapt by 89 percent from 2010 to 2015.
Last year, 174 people died in crashes in which a driver either tested positive for drugs or an officer determined drugs contributed to the crash. For alcohol, the tally reached 136 deaths, while distracted driving was associated with 51 killed.
Experts have attributed the increase to a rising prevalence of prescription drug abuse. Officers are also now better trained to detect drug-impaired drivers.
Traffic fatalities in general are on the rise in Tennessee this year, but it is too early to tell how many are drug-related.

One person was injured Wednesday night in a three-vehicle crash on Shelbyville Road.
According to the Tennessee Highway Patrol, Halona Brooke Wanamaker was driving westbound in a 2008 Kia when she lost control while negotiating a curve and went into the oncoming lane of traffic. Her vehicle collided first with an eastbound 1988 Chevy Pickup, driven by Larry Smartt, and then collided with a 2011 Nissan, driven by Brandi Chrestman.
The pickup overturned, trapping Smartt inside. Smartt had to be extricated and was airlifted to Erlanger with severe injuries. No one else was injured.
Trooper Gary Myers said charges against Wanamaker for excessive speed and recklessness are pending.
