Crawford, MO (November 26, 2021) – An auto accident reported in Crawford County sent one person to a local hospital with injuries. At around 2:25 a.m., on November 23, emergency crews were notified that their assistance was needed on-site at a crash on Interstate 44.
Reports from authorities show that a 2014 Ford Fusion was traveling on the westbound side of Interstate 44. For unknown reasons, the vehicle became involved in a collision with a 1997 GMC C series vehicle near mile marker 202.2.
The driver of the Ford, 49-year-old Talbert Marshall, sustained injuries in the crash. He was transported to Phelps Health for care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Talbert Marshall at this time. We hope for his full recovery.
Car Accidents in Missouri
Reports provided by the Missouri Department of Transportation and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration show that the state of Missouri ranks 19th out of all 50 states for the likelihood of people being involved in fatal collisions. Between 2012 and 2014, more than 2,300 people lost their lives in accidents throughout the state. Thousands more are left with life-altering injuries that require extensive medical treatment.
Even though many injured victims have to take some time off work to recover from their injuries, numerous victims are left permanently disabled and unable to return to work after. When victims are injured in accidents resulting from the negligence of other motorists, it is important that they seek legal guidance as soon as possible. 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.
Victims may be entitled to compensation that can help cover the costs of care and other expenses moving forward. A responsive and effective car accident attorney in Crawford can help to explain your legal rights as a victim of an accident.
