Hayti, MO (December 18, 2021) – Two men were left with serious injuries following a motor vehicle accident in the Hayti area. At around 11:15 p.m., on December 16, emergency crews were notified that their assistance was needed on-site at a crash on US Highway 412.
Reports from the Missouri State Highway Patrol show that a 2004 Ford F-150 and a 2000 Ford F-150 collided on US Highway 412 just half a mile west of Hayti. Both vehicles sustained extensive damage in the accident and were towed from the scene.
The drivers of both vehicles were injured. EMS transported 47-year-old Joshua Tomlin to Dyersburg Regional Medical Center for care. The second victim, 72-year-old Wayne Terry, was airlifted to St Bernard’s for further assistance.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Joshua Tomlin and Wayne Terry 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.
People involved in collisions are often forced to spend tens of thousands of dollars on medical treatment and vehicle repairs while going without wages from work. Even though many injured victims have to take some time off work to recover from their injuries, numerous victims are left permanently disabled and unable to return to work after. When victims are injured in accidents as a result of other drivers, it is important that they seek the legal guidance of a Hayti car accident attorney as soon as possible.
