Recent crash kills 1, leaves 1 with serious injuries

On Behalf of | May 12, 2022 | Personal Injury |

While some rear-end crashes may involve little more than minor vehicle damage and delays in schedule, there is always a chance that the results of such an incident could prove more severe in nature. Similar types of collisions could prompt a chain reaction of events that could place the safety and lives of all parties involved at risk. One person died and another suffered serious injuries during a recent car accident that began when a vehicle rear-ended a truck in Missouri.

3-car crash

Reports indicate that the incident took place at around 3:11 p.m. on a recent Saturday. For reasons unknown, the driver of a motor vehicle suddenly crashed into the rear end of a nearby truck, forcing the truck to overturn and roll off the road. The first vehicle proceeded to crash into a third vehicle soon after before veering off the road and coming to a rest.

Authorities have advised that the driver who caused the crash was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the truck reportedly suffered severe injuries and was airlifted to a nearby hospital for medical care. While an investigation into the crash is underway, no further information was provided as to why the driver of the first vehicle may have failed to slow down in time to avoid causing the crash.

Serious injuries

Individuals in Missouri who suffer serious injuries in a car accident involving a negligent driver may wish to exercise their rights to seek accountability in civil court, but the process can be complex. When facing a similar situation, a person might choose to retain the services of an attorney for guidance in navigating the process. An attorney can help a client better prepare to seek the restitution entitled through a claim against the party deemed at fault, or against the estate of the deceased should the responsible party die in the crash.
