St Charles, MO (December 4, 2021) – One woman was left with injuries following an auto accident in the St Charles area. At around 8:05 p.m., on December 1, the Missouri State Highway Patrol was requested on-site at a crash on Interstate 70.
Reports from authorities show that a 2011 Kia Sorento was traveling on the westbound side of Interstate 70 when the driver lost control of the vehicle. The Kia struck the median wall then returned to the roadway and crashed into a 2008 Ford Taurus near Cave Springs Road.
The driver of the Ford, a 78-year-old female, sustained injuries in the accident. She was transported to Barnes Jewish Hospital 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
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.
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.
Being forced out of work to deal with these injuries can make it extremely challenging to cover the cost of care. 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 St Charles area after your accident can greatly improve your chances of recovering.
