Dixon, MO (November 19, 2021) – At around 3:09 p.m., on November 17, the Missouri State Highway Patrol responded to the scene of a major motor vehicle accident on Highway D.
Reports from authorities show that an unknown vehicle failed to yield the right of way to a 2013 Nissan Altima, prompting the two vehicles to collide just west of the Phelps County Line. The impact of the crash then caused a 1997 GMC K1500 to collide with the Nissan. A 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee then collided with the GMC.
The driver of the Jeep, 26-year-old Megan Neal, and the driver of the Nissan, 31-year-old Nathan Cook, were both injured in the accident.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Megan Neal and Nathan Cook at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Car Accidents in Missouri
In many cases, victims sustain broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and various other life-changing injuries that require extensive medical treatment. The unfortunate truth is that motor vehicle accidents impact more than just the mental and physical health and wellbeing of victims. Not only are accidents overwhelmingly painful, but they can be financially draining as well.
The time following a collision is full of uncertainty. In numerous cases, accident victims are left with serious injuries that demand medical attention both immediately and long-term. Being forced out of work to deal with these injuries can make it extremely challenging to cover the cost of care.
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. Victims may be entitled to compensation that can help cover the costs of care and other expenses moving forward.
