Curryville, MO (November 19, 2021) – One man was left injured following a truck crash in Pike County on Wednesday afternoon, November 17. At around 3:25 p.m., authorities were notified that their assistance was needed on-site at a crash on US Highway 54.
Reports from authorities show that a 2000 Peterbilt 379 and a 1999 Chevrolet Tahoe were both traveling east on US Highway 54. As the Chevrolet began to slow down, it was rear-ended by the Peterbilt.
The driver of the Chevrolet, 58-year-old Thomas Finnegan, sustained injuries in the accident. He was transported by Pike County Ambulance to Pike County Memorial Hospital.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Thomas Finnegan at this time. We hope for his full recovery.
Car Accidents in Missouri
Thousands of motorists are involved in collisions throughout the state of Missouri each year. Although not all accidents end in catastrophic injuries, a fair share of these accidents do force victims into area hospitals. In many cases, victims sustain broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and various other life-changing injuries that require extensive medical treatment.
These collisions often force innocent victims into area hospitals where they have to undergo extensive medical treatment. 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 only do are most victims left to deal with pain and suffering, but the financial consequences of accidents can be crippling for both victims and their families. People involved in collisions are often forced to spend tens of thousands of dollars on medical treatment and vehicle repairs while going without wages from work.
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 Curryville car accident attorney as soon as possible.
