Drunk Driver Killed When Car Slams Into Park Gate

Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park

National Park News

A 32-year-old man was killed in a single-vehicle accident on Snodgrass Hill Road on the evening of Tuesday, December 4th. A Nissan Altima being driven at a high rate of speed drifted off the park road and slammed into a metal pipe gate which was locked in an open position. The end of gate punched through the front grille and under the hood and continued through the firewall and dashboard, entering into the interior of the car and striking the driver. The force was so great that the body’s final resting point was in the rear seat. The accident was discovered by a ranger on patrol around 11 p.m. Nearby fire, EMS and rescue units assisted with accident management. Evidence strongly indicates that the driver was highly intoxicated.
