Neosho, MO (November 30, 2021) – Two people were transported to Mercy Hospital for care following a motor vehicle accident in Newton County on Sunday evening, November 28. At around 5:30 p.m., the Missouri State Highway Patrol was notified that their assistance was needed on-site at a crash on Missouri State Highway 175.
Reports from MSHP show that a collision between a 2018 Ram pickup truck and a 1996 Ford Explorer occurred on Missouri State Highway 175 just one mile north of Neosho.
The crash left two people inside the Ford injured. The victims, identified as 49-year-old Anderson Likaro and 54-year-old Yaieko Sailas, were both transported to Mercy Hospital in Joplin for care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Yaieko Sailas and Anderson Likaro at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Car Accidents in Missouri
Every day, motor vehicle accidents impact the lives of innocent people across our state. In countless instances, victims require emergency medical attention due to their injuries. Although most motorists are careful and are considerate of other motorists sharing the road, we see many accidents take place due to driver error. In fact, over 80% of collisions involve some form of negligence.
In Missouri, some of the leading causes of crashes include:
- Drivers who are speeding
- Drivers who are distracted by phones and other objects
- Drivers who fail to yield the right of way
- Drivers who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol
These and other acts of negligence often lead to life-altering crashes that force victims out of work for several weeks. When victims are harmed in accidents, through no fault of their own, they may have legal options available to recover.
