Breton Township, MO (November 10, 2021) – A motor vehicle accident reported in Washington County on Tuesday left several people injured, according to local news sources. At around 4:45 p.m., on November 9, emergency crews were notified that their assistance was needed at the scene of an accident on Missouri Route 21.
Reports from authorities show that a 1992 Chevrolet Caprice and a 2020 Chevrolet Trax collided on Missouri State Route 21 near the intersection of Schroer Road.
The incident caused moderate delays at the intersection after emergency crews closed off the roadway to clear the scene.
A 13-year-old female and 46-year-old Heather Kail, both occupants of the Trax, sustained injuries in the accident. Two other victims in the Caprice, 23-year-old Andrew Robinson and 27-year-old Rebecca Pfingtston, sustained moderate injuries. All four victims were transported to Washington County Memorial Hospital via ambulance for care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Heather Kail, Rebecca Pfingtston, Andrew Robinson, and the child injured in this accident. We hope for their full recovery.
Car Accidents in Missouri
Each year, motor vehicle accidents impact the lives of thousands of people across our state. Not only do people involved in collisions have their lives disrupted, but they are often left with significant financial, mental, and physical consequences as well. In many cases, victims sustain injuries that require extensive medical treatment. When victims break their bones or suffer traumatic head or neck injuries, they often need multiple surgeries and have to spend months off their feet or go to therapy.
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. 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.
Regrettably, many victims never recover from their injuries and are left permanently disabled and out of work. When victims are injured in accidents as a result of other drivers, it is important that they seek the legal guidance of a Breton Township car accident attorney as soon as possible.
