Tennessee Woman’s Family Seeks Damages in Explosion Death

In November 2010, 44-year-old Tennessee resident Yolanda Bates pulled into a locally owned convenience store called Abel’s Way. Not realizing that a potentially dangerous situation existed, Bates drove over a hose that was connected to a gas tanker truck, causing a massive explosion that lead to her death.

Bates’ son has filed a suit against the store owners, the truck driver, and the company that owns the tanker truck, claiming that the placement of the underground fuel tanks close to the store’s parking lot entrance constituted an act of deadly negligence.
