Categorized as Auto Accidents

Ellsinore, MO (December 20, 2021) – An automobile accident reported in the Ellsinore area left two women injured. At around 9:30 p.m., on December 17, emergency crews were notified that their assistance was needed on-site at a crash on US Highway 60.

Reports from the Missouri State Highway Patrol indicate that a crash between a 2007 Lexus RX350 and a 2004 Kia Sorento occurred on US Highway 60 just one-quarter mile west of Ellsinore. Both vehicles were left totaled and had to be towed from the scene.

Two people involved in the crash were injured. The victims were identified as 24-year-old Sydney Godwin and 26-year-old Mallory Guess, both from Poplar Bluff.

At this time, the Missouri State Highway Patrol is investigating to determine the cause of the crash.

Our thoughts are with Sydney Godwin and Mallory Guess at this time. We hope for their full recovery.

Car Accidents in Missouri

Each year, motor vehicle crashes affect the lives of thousands of families across our state. Not only do people involved in collisions have their lives disrupted, but they are often left with significant financial, mental, and physical consequences as well. In many cases, victims sustain injuries that require extensive medical treatment. When victims break their bones or suffer traumatic head or neck injuries, they often need multiple surgeries and have to spend months off their feet or go to therapy.

These collisions often force innocent victims into area hospitals where they have to undergo extensive medical treatment. Many victims require hospitalization and have to spend weeks or even months off work as they go through therapy and transition back into their normal routine.

To make the struggle even worse, towering medical bills start rolling in immediately. When victims are harmed in accidents as a result of other motorists, our state allows them to file legal claims against wrongdoers to recover compensation for the financial burdens they endure. Victims can benefit immensely by consulting with a car accident attorney in Ellsinore who is well-versed in personal injury laws in our state.
