Grain Valley, MO (November 14, 2021) – At approximately 6:30 a.m., on November 13, emergency crews were notified that their assistance was needed on-site at a crash in Jackson County.

Reports from the Missouri State Highway Patrol show that a 2012 GMC Sierra, driven by 50-year-old Manuel Vera, was involved in a collision with a 2018 International tractor truck, driven by 73-year-old Donald Thomas, on Interstate 70 near mile marker 24.4.

Thomas sustained injuries in the accident. He was rendered aid at the scene before transporting to a local hospital for further care.

At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with Donald Thomas at this time. We hope for his full recovery.

Car Accidents in Missouri

More than 55,000 people are left with life-altering injuries that require extensive medical treatment following motor vehicle accidents each year in the state of Missouri. Although not all accidents end in catastrophic injuries, a fair share of these accidents do force victims into area hospitals. Dealing with painful and debilitating injuries is only made worse by the significant financial consequences that victims and their families are forced to endure.

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. Victims who are injured in accidents due to the negligence of others may be entitled to compensation to cover the financial burdens they face moving forward. Some of the most common damages victims are able to recover include compensation for:

  • Lost wages
  • Medical costs (both immediate and long-term)
  • Vehicle repairs
  • Pain and suffering
