Blue Springs, MO (December 3, 2021) – A motor vehicle accident reported in Jackson County on Thursday morning left one woman injured. At around 3:55 a.m., on December 2, emergency crews were notified that their assistance was needed on-site at a crash on Interstate 70.
Reports from the Missouri State Highway Patrol show that a 2004 Buick Rendezvous and a 2022 Freightliner collided on the westbound side of Interstate 70 just east of South Little Blue Parkway.
The crash caused moderate delays in the area as emergency crews worked to clear the roadway.
The driver of the Buick, identified as 19-year-old Treonna Haynes, sustained moderate injuries in the accident. She was transported to Centerpoint Medical Center for care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Treonna Haynes at this time. We hope for her full recovery.
Car Accidents in Missouri
Thousands of motorists are involved in collisions throughout the state of Missouri each year. Although not all accidents end in catastrophic injuries, a fair share of these accidents do force victims into area hospitals. In many cases, victims sustain broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and various other life-changing injuries that require extensive medical treatment.
Although most motorists are careful and are considerate of other motorists sharing the road, we see many accidents take place due to driver error. In fact, over 80% of collisions involve some form of negligence.
In Missouri, some of the leading causes of crashes include:
- Drivers who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Drivers who are speeding
- Drivers who fail to yield the right of way
- Drivers who are distracted by phones and other objects
These and other acts of negligence often lead to life-altering crashes that force victims out of work for several weeks. When victims are harmed in accidents, through no fault of their own, they may have legal options available to recover.
