Marion Township, MO (November 28, 2021) – One man was left injured as a result of a motor vehicle accident in Cole County. At around 1 p.m., on November 26, calls for assistance came in surrounding an accident on US Highway 50.
Reports from the Missouri State Highway Patrol show that a rear-end collision between a 2019 Chevrolet Silverado and a 2016 Chevrolet Silverado occurred on US Highway 50 near Route U. The crash left both vehicles with moderate damage.
The driver of the 2019 Chevrolet, 59-year-old William Drake, was not injured in the accident.
The driver of the 2016 Chevrolet, 81-year-old Victor Lovell, was transported to St. Mary’s Hospital for the treatment of injuries.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Victor Lovell at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Car Accidents in Missouri
Each year, more than 55,000 people are hurt in crashes throughout the state of Missouri. Here in Wilson Township, we see many victims hospitalized with injuries that impact their health and wellbeing. Broken arms, burn injuries, and evening internal organ damages are incredibly painful injuries. They are also very costly to treat.
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. 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 Marion Township car accident attorney as soon as possible.
