Springfield, MO (December 29, 2021) – One man was transported to a local hospital with injuries following a motor vehicle collision in Greene County. At around 10:30 p.m., on December 27, calls for assistance came in surrounding a crash on South Cox Avenue.
Reports from authorities show that a 2010 Ford Fusion was traveling on the roadway with no headlights on. As a 2021 Toyota Corolla turned into the pathway of the vehicle, the Ford crashed into the Toyota.
The driver of the Toyota, 80-year-old Jerry Ebbs, was transported to Mercy Hospital for the treatment of injuries.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Jerry Ebbs at this time. We hope for his full recovery.
Car Accidents in Missouri
According to reports provided by the Missouri State Department of Public Safety, more than 55,000 people are injured in auto accidents throughout our state each year. Although many accidents resolve with only minor injuries, thousands of people are hospitalized with life-threatening injuries that require emergency and ongoing care.
In many cases, victims sustain broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and various other life-changing injuries that require extensive medical treatment. 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. The unfortunate truth is that motor vehicle accidents impact more than just the mental and physical health and wellbeing of victims. Not only are accidents overwhelmingly painful, but they can be financially draining as well.
When victims are injured in accidents, those harmed are able to pursue legal actions to obtain compensation to cover the financial burdens they face moving forward. Working with a knowledgeable and aggressive car accident attorney in the Springfield area after your accident can greatly improve your chances of recovering.
