Categorized as Auto Accidents

Southwest City, MO (December 25, 2021) – One person was transported to an area hospital with injuries following a crash in McDonald County. At around 10:30 a.m., on December 24, calls for assistance came in surrounding a crash on Missouri State Route 43.

Reports from authorities show that a 2003 Chevrolet Tahoe was traveling on Missouri State Route 43 when it crashed into the rear of a 2021 Subaru Legacy just one mile north of Southwest City.

The driver of the Subaru, a 16-year-old female from Rogers, Arkansas, was injured in the crash. She was transported to Grove Hospital in Oklahoma for care.

At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with the victim who was injured in this accident. We hope for her full recovery.

Car Accidents in Missouri

Reports provided by the Missouri Department of Transportation and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration demonstrate that Missouri ranks 19th out of all 50 states for the likelihood of victims being involved in fatal crashes. Between 2012 and 2014, more than 2,300 people lost their lives in crashes throughout the state. More than 55,000 more are left with life-altering injuries that require extensive medical treatment. Some of the most common factors contributing to auto accidents in our state include:

  • Speeding
  • Driving while impaired
  • Driving while distracted
  • Failing to yield the right of way to others

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 Southwest City car accident attorney as soon as possible.
