Categorized as Auto Accidents

Republic, MO (November 1, 2021) – A motor vehicle accident reported in Greene County left two people injured, according to local law enforcement. At around 3:44 a.m., on October 31, the Missouri State Highway Patrol was notified that an accident occurred on US Highway 60.

Reports from authorities indicate that a 2003 Honda Civic collided with a 1999 International on US Highway 60 in the City of Republic. The incident left the Honda with totaling damages, requiring the vehicle to be towed from the scene.

The driver of the Honda, 18-year-old Zakary Javurek, and his passenger, a 16-year-old female, were both injured in the accident. Javurek was transported to Mercy Hospital for care while his passenger was rushed to Cox Hospital for the treatment of serious injuries.

At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with Zakary Javurek and the female injured in this accident. We hope for their 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. Although most drivers are careful while traveling through the area, we see many people harmed in crashes due to others. Some of the leading causes of crashes include:

  • Motorists who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Motorists who are speeding
  • Motorists who fail to yield the right of way
  • Motorists who are distracted by phones and other objects

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.

When victims are hurt in motor vehicle collisions, through no fault of their own, they may have legal options available to recover. Working with a responsive Republic car accident attorney can help to ensure you are in the best position possible to get justice.
