Rogersville, MO (November 12, 2021) – One woman was hospitalized with injuries from a motor vehicle accident in Greene County on Thursday morning, November 11. At around 8 a.m., the Missouri State Highway Patrol was notified that a crash took place on US Highway 60.
Reports from authorities show that a 2015 Honda Pilot, driven by 38-year-old Jennifer Bybee, struck the rear of a 2010 Chevrolet Aveo, driven by 71-year-old Janet Oziah.
Oziah sustained injuries in the accident. She was transported to Cox South for emergency medical care.
At this time, MSHP is investigating to determine the cause of the crash.
Our thoughts are with Janet Oziah at this time. We hope for her full recovery.
Car Accidents in Missouri
Suffering spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and even back injuries can result in the need of long-term care. Many victims who suffer severe injuries are forced out of work forever. As if dealing with the painful injuries was not enough, victims and their families are often forced to deal with stacking medical expenses, lost wages, and vehicle repairs. Although no two accidents are alike, we see many similarities when it comes to the consequences they have.
In Missouri, some of the most common contributing factors to 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 people are harmed in traffic-related incidents, due to the negligence of others, they often have legal options available to help them recover.
