Warren, MO (December 13, 2021) – A Crash reported on Sunday morning in Warren County left one man injured. At around 6:05 a.m., on December 12, emergency crews were notified that their assistance was needed on-site at a crash on Interstate 70.
Reports from the Missouri State Highway Patrol show that a 2007 Honda Civic was passing a 2022 Freightliner Cascadia on the eastbound side of Interstate 70. At the same time, the Freightliner attempted to change lanes. As a result, the truck crashed into the Honda. The force of the impact caused the Honda to travel off the north side of the road near mile marker 190.6.
The driver of the Honda, 34-year-old David Vennell, sustained injuries in the accident. Vennell was transported to SSM Health St Joseph Hospital Lake St. Louis for care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with David Vennell 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. 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.
Not being able to work while being overwhelmed with tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills not only impacts victims but their families as well. It does not seem right that victims who are injured in accidents as a result of the actions of others are forced to spend substantial amounts of money on treatment.
When people are hurt in motor vehicle collisions, those harmed are able to pursue legal actions to recover compensation to cover the financial burdens they face moving forward. Working with a skilled and aggressive car accident attorney in the Warren area after your accident can greatly improve your chances of recovering.
