St Louis, MO (December 31, 2021) – One woman was left with injuries as a result of a motor vehicle accident in the St Louis area on Thursday evening, December 30. At around 8:30 p.m., the Missouri State Highway Patrol responded to the scene of a crash on Interstate 270.
Reports from MSHP show that a 2005 Ford F-1560 merged onto Interstate 270 from the shoulder into lane three without exercising caution. As a result, the vehicle collided with a 2000 Subaru Legacy Outback near Missouri State Route 367.
The driver of the Subaru, 61-year-old Cheryl Meier, was injured in the accident. She was transported via Christian EMS to Christian Hospital Northeast for care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Cheryl Meier at this time. We hope for her full recovery.
Car Accidents in Missouri
Thousands of motorists are involved in collisions throughout the state of Missouri each year. Some of the most common factors contributing to auto crashes in our state include:
- Operating a vehicle while impaired
- Operating a vehicle while distracted
- Failing to yield the right of way to other drivers sharing the road
Although not all accidents end in catastrophic injuries, a fair share of these accidents do force victims into area hospitals. In many cases, victims sustain broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and various other life-changing injuries that require extensive medical treatment.
Even though many injured victims have to take some time off work to recover from their injuries, numerous victims are left permanently disabled and unable to return to work after.
When victims are harmed in accidents, due to the negligence of others, they often have legal options available to help them move forward. When victims are injured in accidents resulting from the negligence of other motorists, it is important that they seek legal guidance as soon as possible. Victims may be entitled to compensation that can help cover the costs of care and other expenses moving forward. A responsive and effective car accident attorney in St Louis can help to explain your legal rights as a victim of an accident.
