Increase in Non-Intersection Angle Crashes

 

Clarksville Police DepartmentClarksville, TN – The Clarksville Police Department wants to give drivers a word of caution about angle crash (commonly referred to as T-bone) accidents which are occurring when drivers are trying to enter a multi-lane roadway (e.g. Wilma Rudolph Blvd) from a side street or business when traffic is heavy and backed up.

The drivers on the main roadway have the right of way, but will sometimes stop to allow vehicles from a side streets or business  to enter onto the main roadway. The problem comes in when not all lanes of traffic stop and the entering vehicle pulls in front of oncoming traffic and a crash occurs. The person that entered the roadway is usually at fault for failing to yield.

There have been over 100 angle crashes so far the month of December.

R.J. Corman group conducts routine maintenance on tracks

 

Clarksville, TN – The R.J. Corman Construction Services Division was in Clarksville, TN just off of South Second Street yesterday doing routine maintenance on the short line railroad which services Montgomery County Tennessee. Periodically the ties that serve as the foundation of the track bed must be replaced. A wooden railroad tie is nine feet long, and weighs 200 pounds. They typically lasts 40 to 70 years.

In the past this replacement process was a backbreaking job which involved manually digging out the old tie, then man handling a new tie into place. Modern rail service companies utilize purpose built machinery to automate a large portion of the process, the tie extractor/inserter machine.
