Categorized as Auto Accidents

Doniphan, MO (November 1, 2021) – One woman was left injured as a result of a two-vehicle collision on Sunday evening, October 31. At around 7:30 p.m., emergency crews were requested on-site at a crash on Route E.

Reports from the Missouri State Highway Patrol show that a 2014 Ford F-250, driven by 18-year-old Isaac Crane, was traveling on Route E when the vehicle crossed over the center lanes and struck a 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe, driven by 50-year-old Frieda Cochran.

The incident caused moderate delays in traffic just 5-miles south of Doniphan.

Cochran sustained injuries in the accident. She was transported to Poplar Bluff Regional Medical Center for care.

At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with Frieda Cochran at this time. We hope for her full recovery.

Car Accidents in Missouri

Every day, we see accidents take place in our state due to the negligence of drivers. Some of the most common factors contributing to auto collisions in Missouri include:

  • Driving while impaired
  • Driving while distracted
  • Speeding
  • Failing to yield the right of way to others

There are thousands of people who sustain broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, and even spinal cord injuries from their accidents. These collisions often force innocent victims into area hospitals where they have to undergo extensive medical treatment. In many cases, victims sustain life-changing injuries that have both immediate and long-term impacts.

The unfortunate truth is that motor vehicle accidents affect 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. 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 people are injured in motor vehicle collisions as a result of other drivers, it is important that they seek the legal guidance of a Doniphan car accident attorney as soon as possible.
