Dexter, MO (December 29, 2021) – Two teens were transported to area hospitals with injuries following a motor vehicle accident in the Dexter area, according to local law enforcement. At around 11:55 p.m., on December 27, emergency crews were notified that their assistance was needed at the scene of a crash on County Road 624.
Reports from local authorities show that a 2018 Honda Civic rear-ended a 2015 Jeep Renegade on County Road 624 just one mile south of Dexter.
Two people in the Jeep were injured. EMS transported 18-year-old Lea Malone and 18-year-old Hannah McNabb to Southeast Health in Dexter for care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Lea Malone and Hannah McNabb at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Car Accidents in Missouri
Reports provided by the Missouri Department of Transportation and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration show that the state of Missouri ranks 19th out of all 50 states for the likelihood of people being involved in fatal collisions. Between 2012 and 2014, more than 2,300 people lost their lives in accidents throughout the state. More than 55,000 more are left with life-altering injuries that require extensive medical treatment.
In many cases, victims sustain broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and various other life-changing injuries that require extensive medical treatment. The unfortunate truth is that motor vehicle accidents impact more than just the mental and physical health and wellbeing of victims. Not only are accidents overwhelmingly painful, but they can be financially draining as well.
Regrettably, many victims never recover from their injuries and are left permanently disabled and out of work. When victims are injured in accidents as a result of other drivers, it is important that they seek the legal guidance of a Dexter car accident attorney as soon as possible.
