Katy Township, MO (December 1, 2021) – Two people were left with injuries following a motor vehicle accident in Boone County on Monday evening, November 29. At around 5:25 p.m., authorities were called to the site of a crash on US Highway 40.
Reports from the Missouri State Highway Patrol show that a 2008 Toyota Sequia and a 2014 Nissan Sentra collided on US Highway 40 near Boothe Lane during the evening hours.
The drivers of both vehicles were injured. The driver of the Nissan, 31-year-old Elizabeth Bambeek, was transported to University Hospital for care. The driver of the Toyota, 32-year-old Molly Widmer, was transported to Women’s and Children’s Hospital.
At this time the incident remains under investigation by MSPH.
Our thoughts are with Elizabeth Bambeek and Molly Widmer at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Car Accidents in Missouri
Car accidents throughout the state of Missouri send thousands of people to area hospitals with injuries. Although some of these collisions are unavoidable, we continue to see numerous people sustain life-changing injuries as a result of the negligent or reckless actions of others.
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.
Victims involved in accidents are often forced out of work for several weeks at a time, going without the monetary support they need to pay their bills and take care of their families. To make the struggle even worse, towering medical bills start rolling in immediately.
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. 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 Katy Township car accident attorney as soon as possible.
