Kansas City, MO (December 9, 2021) – An automobile accident reported in the Kansas City area sent one man to a local hospital with injuries. At around 4:45 p.m., on December 7, the Missouri State Highway Patrol and firefighters responded to the scene of an accident on Interstate 29.

Reports from authorities show that a 2007 Pontiac G5 was traveling on the northbound side of Interstate 29 when the vehicle lost a tire near mile marker 3.4. As a result, the vehicle crashed into a concrete median before striking a 2008 Ford Explorer. The impact of the crash caused the tire to become airborne and strike a 2013 Ford F-150.

The driver of the Explorer, 53-year-old Hien Pham, sustained injuries in the accident. He was transported to North Kansas City Hospital for care.

At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with Hien Pham at this time. We hope for his 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. Thousands more are left with life-altering injuries that require extensive medical treatment.

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.
