Categorized as Auto Accidents

La Grange, MO (December 9, 2021) – Three people were left with injuries following an auto accident in Lewis County on Tuesday evening. At around 6:25 p.m., on December 7, the Missouri State Highway Patrol responded to the scene of a crash on US Highway 61.

Reports from MSHP show that a 2015 Mazda Six and a 2003 Chevrolet Blazer were involved in a crash on US Highway 61 just three miles south of La Grange.

Three people involved in the crash were injured. One victim, 47-year-old Ronna Boyer, was treated for her injuries at the scene. EMS transported 68-year-old Beverly Smith and 77-year-old Bobby Smith to Blessing Hospital for care. At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with Ronna Boyer, Beverly Smith, and Bobby Smith at this time. We hope for their full recovery.

Car Accidents in Missouri

No one is able to completely prepare for the aftermath of a traffic-related incident. You cannot predict the overall impact painful injuries, financial burdens, and other negative consequences are going to have on your life.

Although most motorists are careful and are considerate of other motorists sharing the road, we see many accidents take place due to driver error. In fact, over 80% of collisions involve some form of negligence.

In Missouri, some of the leading causes of crashes include:

  • Drivers who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Drivers who are speeding
  • Drivers who fail to yield the right of way
  • Drivers who are distracted by phones and other objects

Regrettably, most people involved in accidents will have their mental and physical health and wellbeing impacted. The financial consequences they face will only make the process of moving forward more challenging.
