Categorized as Auto Accidents

Morley, MO (December 3, 2021) – One woman was hospitalized with moderate injuries following a motor vehicle collision in Scott County on Thursday afternoon. Just after 2:20 p.m., on December 2, calls for assistance came in surrounding a crash on US Highway 61.

Reports from Missouri State Highway Patrol Trooper J J Schuenemeyer show that a 2008 Dodge Ram pickup truck rear-ended a 2005 Chevrolet Impala on US Highway 61 at the intersection of County Road 430.

The driver of the Chevrolet, 37-year-old Chastity Tragsser, was injured in the accident. Tragsser was transported by North Scott County EMS to St Francis Hospital in Cape Girardeau for care. At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with Chastity Tragsster at this time. We hope for her full recovery.

Car Accidents in Missouri

Each year, automobile accidents in the state of Missouri leave tens of thousands of people injured. In many cases, victims are harmed in crashes due to the negligence of others. There are thousands of people who sustain broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, and even spinal cord injuries from their accidents. 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. Regrettably, many victims never recover from their injuries and are left permanently disabled and out of work. When victims are injured in accidents as a result of other drivers, it is important that they seek the legal guidance of a Morley car accident attorney as soon as possible.
