Franklin, MO (December 8, 2021) – A motor vehicle accident reported in Franklin County left two people injured. At around 6:10 p.m., on December 6, emergency crews were requested on-site at a crash on Highway BB.

Reports provided by Missouri State Highway Patrol Msgt. L. J. Keathley show that a 2015 Volkswagen GTI was traveling south on Highway BB when it was rear-ended by a 2004 Honda Accord near US Highway 50.

The driver of the Volkswagen, 45-year-old Angela Wilka, and her passenger, a 16-year-old male, were both injured in the accident. The two victims were transported to Mercy Hospital Washington for care.

At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with Angela Wilka and the teen injured in this accident. We hope for their full recovery.

Car Accidents in Missouri

Crashes in the state of Missouri send tens of thousands of people to area hospitals with injuries each year. In many instances, victims have to go through emergency surgery and spend weeks in recovery. People who are injured in accidents often deal with an array of challenges moving forward. Not only are most victims left to deal with pain and suffering, but the financial consequences of accidents can be crippling for both victims and their families.

It does not seem right that victims who are injured in accidents as a result of the actions of others are forced to spend substantial amounts of money on treatment. Rather than moving forward after an accident alone, victims should consult with a responsive car accident attorney in Kansas City who can help educate them with regards to legal options available and help them to exercise their rights and collect the compensation they need and deserve. When victims are injured in accidents as a result of other drivers, it is important that they seek the legal guidance of a Franklin car accident attorney as soon as possible.
