Princeton, MO (November 17, 2021) – Authorities were notified that an accident took place on November 16 that sent one man to a local hospital with injuries. At around 5:50 a.m., calls for assistance came in surrounding a crash on US Highway 65.
Reports from Missouri State Highway Patrol show that a 2019 Nissan Rogue failed to yield the right of way to a 2006 Saturn Ion on US Highway 65 at the intersection of US Highway 136. As a result, the two vehicles collided.
The driver of the Saturn, 50-year-old David Mullen of Bethany, Missouri, sustained injuries in the accident. Mullen was transported by Mercer County Ambulance to Harrison County Community Hospital for medical care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with David Mullen at this time. We hope for his full recovery.
Car Accidents in Missouri
Car accidents in the state of Missouri leave tens of thousands of people with injuries each year. In many cases, victims are rushed from the scene of their accidents to local hospitals for emergency medical care. After going through emergency surgery, many victims have to spend weeks off work to recover.
There are many cases where injured victims are harmed in accidents caused by drivers who engage in reckless, negligent, and malicious actions while operating their vehicles. In fact, over 80% of collisions involve some form of negligence.
In Missouri, some of the leading causes of crashes include:
- Motorists who fail to yield the right of way
- Motorists who are distracted by phones and other objects
- Motorists who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Motorists who are speeding
These and other negligent actions leave countless innocent parties with broken bones, spinal cord injuries, internal organ damage, and other injuries that demand both immediate and long-term medical care.
