Buchanan Co, MO - Kara McCartney Injured in Two-Car Accident on I-29 at Frederick Ave

Jul 21, 2021

Buchanan Co, MO (July 21, 2021) - A Lee’s Summit woman sustained injuries in a Buchanan County crash that occurred on Monday afternoon, July 19.

Troopers with the Missouri State Highway Patrol reported that the accident occurred on the southbound Interstate 29 exit ramp to Frederick Avenue. Around 3:00 p.m., officers say that a vehicle driven by 37-year-old Kara L. McCartney was traveling southbound when it stopped at a yield sign. Shortly thereafter, she was struck in the rear by another southbound vehicle operated by 40-year-old Maryville man Mitchell W. Coffelt. 

McCartney suffered injuries in the crash and was transported to an area medical center via ambulance. Troopers did not list injury information for Coffelt.

Authorities say the incident is still under investigation, and further details have not been released.

Our thoughts are with the injured victims at this time. We hope for their full recovery.

Car Accidents Causing Injuries in Missouri

Nearly 40% of all automobile collisions in the state of Missouri end with some kind of personal injury. It is, sadly, very common for the victims involved in these car accidents to receive injuries that, at first, appear to be very minor, leaving the victim to believe that any additional medical attention is not necessary. Even injuries that appear insignificant, such as the early stages of whiplash, can suddenly develop into something much more serious.

When victims receive injuries in auto accidents brought on by another person’s disregard for the laws of the road, Missouri permits them to file a claim of personal injury against the liable motorist for financial reimbursement. Victims should seek the guidance of a car accident attorney in Missouri who has decades of practice in how to handle personal injury laws.

An estimated 10% of motor vehicle accident victims who eventually receive a diagnosis diagnosed of whiplash initially believed they had succeeded in escaping injury during their crash until they began experiencing symptoms that were serious enough to disrupt their day-to-day lives.

A skilled and accomplished vehicle injury accident attorney will implement the most modernized techniques of reviewing every aspect of your car accident, making absolutely certain that the careless party is brought to account, and guaranteeing that you receive the full amount of financial compensation that Missouri law entitles you to.
