St Louis, MO (December 27, 2021) – One man was left with injuries as a result of a two-vehicle collision in the St Louis area on Monday morning, December 27. At around 8:35 a.m., authorities were notified that their assistance was needed on-site at a crash on Interstate 170.

Reports from the Missouri State Highway Patrol show that a 2006 Chevrolet Impala was traveling north on Interstate 170 when it collided with a 2012 Chevrolet Malibu just north of the intersection of Missouri State Highway 180.

One person involved in the crash was injured. EMS transported 20-year-old Caleb Fuller to Mercy Hospital in St Louis for care.

At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with Caleb Fuller 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. 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.

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.

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 Louis area after your accident can greatly improve your chances of recovering.
