Warsaw, MO (March 02, 2021) - On Tuesday, March 2nd, a collision between two vehicles on State Highway 7 led to the death of a passenger.

Sources reported that at about 10:15 a.m., a 2019 Ford F350 pick-up truck driven by a 57-year-old female from Warsaw began making a lefthand turn onto Commercial Street when it was struck by a 2014 Toyota Camry driven by a 30-year-old female from Lincoln.

The passenger in the Camry, 79-year-old Charles L. Stranathan, a resident of Warsaw, was pronounced dead at the scene. The body was taken to Reser Funeral Home.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol, Warsaw Police Department, and Benton County Sheriff’s Department all assisted at the scene.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim, Mr. Charles L. Stranathan, at this time.

Passenger Fatalities in Warsaw

undefinedUnder Missouri law, the immediate family members of passengers who died in car accidents may be allowed to file for financial compensation. It is vital that surviving members of the family retain an attorney who understands the most effective ways to successfully entreat all appropriate and available avenues of financial recovery.

The family of the deceased passenger is eligible to bring a claim against the at-fault driver. According to Missouri driving law, a passenger is not able to be held liable for the negligent behavior that led to the accident.
