Cabool, MO (December 5, 2021) – One man was left with moderate injuries as a result of a crash in Texas County on Friday afternoon, December 3. At around 1:50 p.m., emergency crews were notified that their assistance was needed on-site at a crash on US Highway 63.
Reports from the Missouri State Highway Patrol show that a rear-end collision between a 1998 Ford Contour and a 2018 Ford F-150 occurred on US Highway 63 just three miles north of Cabool.
The driver of the Ford Contour, 31-year-old Robert Forester, sustained moderate injuries in the accident. Forester was transported by ambulance to Texas County Memorial Hospital (TCMH) for care.
At this time, the Missouri State Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.
Our thoughts are with Robert Forester at this time. We hope for his full recovery.
Car Accidents in Missouri
We see tens of thousands of people injured in motor vehicle accidents across the state of Missouri due to the negligence of other drivers. In many cases, victims are left with painful injuries from accidents caused by drunk drivers, distracted drivers, and those who choose to engage in reckless driving actions. These and other negligent actions leave countless innocent parties with broken bones, spinal cord injuries, internal organ damage, and other injuries that demand both immediate and long-term medical care.
When people suffer spinal cord injuries, broken bones, and even traumatic brain injuries, they often require long-term care as well. 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. Regrettably, many victims never recover from their injuries and are left permanently disabled and out of work.
In some instances, victims may have legal options available to help them move forward. Following your accident, you can benefit greatly by reaching out to a Cabool car accident lawyer as soon as possible. You may be entitled to compensation to help cover the financial burdens you face.
