Rosendale, MO (November 29, 2021) – Two people were left injured following an auto accident in Andrew County on Friday afternoon, November 26. At around 3 p.m., calls for assistance came in surrounding an accident on US Highway 71.

Reports from the Missouri State Highway Patrol indicate that a collision involving a 1996 Ford Focus occurred on US Highway 71 just north of County Road 137. The crash caused the vehicle to overturn several times before coming to rest on its roof.

The driver of the vehicle, 28-year-old Megan Deshon, and her passenger, 27-year-old Brian Pulec, were both injured in the accident. Both victims were transported to Mosaic Life Center in St Joseph for care.

At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with Megan Deshon and Brian Pulec at this time. We hope for their full recovery.

Car Accidents in Missouri

Every year, tens of thousands of people in Missouri are left with injuries following motor vehicle accidents. These accidents are often unpredictable. However, the consequences can have a negative impact on the mental, physical, and financial well-being of those involved.

Although no two accidents are alike, we see many similarities when it comes to the consequences they have. In many cases, victims are left with painful injuries that require both immediate and long-term care. Suffering spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and even back injuries can result in the need of long-term care.

Dealing with painful injuries while facing towering medical expenses, vehicle repair costs, and lost wages can be incredibly challenging. Not only do victims suffer, but their families are often forced to endure financial strains as well.
