Categorized as Auto Accidents

St Louis, MO (December 14, 2021) – One man was transported to Barnes Jewish Hospital with moderate injuries following a multi-vehicle collision in St Louis City on Monday morning, December 13.

At around 10:15 a.m., emergency crews were called to the site of a crash on Interstate 70. Reports from Missouri State Highway Patrol Trooper K. G. Barba show that a 2000 Toyota Corolla, a 2000 Kenworth T800, a 2018 International SA525, and a 2014 Chevrolet Sonic were all traveling east on Interstate 70.

For unknown reasons, a collision occurred between the Toyota and the 2018 International SA525. The impact of the crash caused the Toyota to skid across the lanes and collide with the Kenworth. The Chevrolet then struck debris from the crash, resulting in some damage to the vehicle.

The driver of the Toyota, 29-year-old Marcus Hayes of St Louis, sustained moderate injuries in the accident. He was transported via EMS to Barnes Jewish Hospital for care.

At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with Marcus Hayes at this time. We hope for his full recovery.

Car Accidents in Missouri

Reports from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Missouri Department of Transportation show that the state of Missouri ranks 19th out of all 50 states for the likelihood of victims losing their lives in fatal collisions. Between 2012 and 2014, more than 2,300 victims lost their lives in crashes throughout the state. Thousands more are left with life-altering injuries that require extensive medical treatment.

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. 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. 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 as a result of other motorists, our state allows them to file legal claims against wrongdoers to recover compensation for the financial burdens they endure. Victims can benefit immensely by consulting with a car accident attorney in St Louis who is well-versed in personal injury laws in our state.
