Winona, MO (December 30, 2021) – One teen was left with injuries as a result of a motor vehicle accident in Winona on Thursday morning, December 30. At around 12:20 a.m., authorities in Shannon County were requested on-site at a crash on US Highway 60.

Reports from the Missouri State Highway Patrol show that a 2008 Toyota Camry was involved in a crash on US Highway 60 just five miles east of Winona. The impact of the crash caused the vehicle to strike an embankment before rolling over and coming to rest.

A passenger in the vehicle was injured. EMS transported 18-year-old Kori Kline to Poplar Bluff Regional Hospital for care.

At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with Kori Kline 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 accidents in our state include:

  • Driving while impaired
  • Failing to yield the right of way to others
  • Driving while distracted
  • Speeding

Although not all accidents end in catastrophic injuries, a fair share of these accidents do force victims into area hospitals. There are thousands of people who sustain broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, and even spinal cord injuries from their accidents. These collisions often force innocent victims into area hospitals where they have to undergo extensive medical treatment. 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.

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 Winona can help to explain your legal rights as a victim of an accident.
