Smithton Township, MO (November 8, 2021) – One man was left with moderate injuries following a motor vehicle accident in Smithton Township on Sunday morning, November 7.
At around 2:47 a.m., a 1998 Chevrolet Silverado was traveling in the area of US Highway 50 and Florence Road when it collided head-on with a 2020 Chevrolet Malibu.
The driver of the Malibu, 24-year-old Sileper Raed, was not injured in the accident. The driver of the Silverado, 19-year-old Wyatt Siegel, sustained moderate injuries. Siegel was transported to University Hospital in Columbia for care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Wyatt Siegel 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, injured parties are rushed from the scene of their crashes to local hospitals for emergency medical care. After going through emergency surgery, many people harmed in accidents have to spend weeks off work to recover.
Although no two accidents are alike, we see many similarities when it comes to the consequences they have. In many cases, injured parties are left with painful injuries that require both immediate and long-term care. Suffering traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and even back injuries can result in the need for long-term care. Many victims who suffer severe injuries are forced out of work indefinitely.
