St Louis, MO (December 8, 2021) – A crash reported in St Louis City left one man with moderate injuries, according to the Missouri State Highway Patrol. At around 12:39 p.m., on December 6, calls for assistance came in surrounding an automobile accident on Interstate 44.
Reports from MSHP Trooper N Stevens show that a 2021 International Harvester HV507 was stationary in lane four of westbound Interstate 44 with emergency equipment activated. For unknown reasons, the driver of a 2007 Chevrolet Uplander failed to yield to the emergency vehicle. As a result, the vehicle struck the towed unit of the International truck.
The driver of the International, 64-year-old Glenn Holmes, sustained moderate injuries in the accident. He was transported to Barnes Jewish Hospital for care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Glenn Holmes at this time. We hope for his full recovery.
Car Accidents in Missouri
We see tens of thousands of victims injured in motor vehicle collisions across the state of Missouri due to the negligence of other drivers. In many cases, victims are left with painful injuries from crashes caused by distracted drivers, drunk drivers, and those who choose to engage in reckless driving actions. These and other negligent actions leave countless innocent parties with broken bones, spinal cord injuries, internal organ damage, and other injuries that demand both immediate and long-term medical care.
People who are injured in accidents often deal with an array of challenges moving forward. Not only do 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. People involved in collisions are often forced to spend tens of thousands of dollars on medical treatment and vehicle repairs while going without wages from work.
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 St Louis car accident attorney as soon as possible.
