Categorized as Auto Accidents

Bethany, MO (November 11, 2021) – An accident reported just southwest of Bethany claimed one man’s life, according to reports. At around 7:50 a.m., on November 10, emergency crews were notified that their assistance was needed on-site at a crash on West 205th Avenue (County Road 205).

Reports from the Missouri State Highway Patrol show that a 2004 Dodge Dakota was traveling north on West 205th Avenue during the morning hours. For unknown reasons, the vehicle collided with a John Deere 8345 farm tractor just .75 miles southwest of Bethany.

The driver of the Dodge, 22-year-old Gaige Sherer, sustained severe injuries in the accident. He was rushed to Cameron Regional Medical Center where he was pronounced deceased.

At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of Gaige Sherer. Our thoughts are with them at this time.

Fatal Car Accidents in Missouri

Each year, car accidents impact the lives of more than 55,000 people in the state of Missouri. Although most people are left with severe injuries that require medical attention, some victims are unable to recover. Instead, they end up passing away as a result of injuries sustained in motor vehicle collisions caused by reckless drivers.

In Missouri, some of the leading causes of crashes include:

  • Drivers who are distracted while operating their vehicles
  • Drivers who are speeding
  • Not seeing other vehicles in blind spots
  • Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Drivers who fail to yield the right of way
