Vienna, MO (November 14, 2021) – An automobile accident reported in Maries County left two people with injuries. At approximately 1:15 p.m., on November 13, emergency crews were notified that their assistance was needed on-site at a crash on Highway 63.
Reports from the Missouri State Highway Patrol show that a 2016 Honda Pilot, driven by 27-year-old Leann Weber, was stopped in traffic to make a left-hand turn on Highway 63 at the intersection of 9th Street. For unknown reasons, a 2015 Chevrolet Impala, driven by 24-year-old Alex Werner, crashed into the rear of a 2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser, driven by 21-year-old Melaney Smith. The impact of the crash caused the Chrysler to move forward and crash into the rear of a 2012 Toyota Camry, driven by 39-year-old Crystal Werdehausen. The impact of the crash then caused the Toyota to rear-end the Honda.
Smith and her passenger, 32-year-old Travion Newberry, were both injured in the accident. The two victims were transported to Capital Region Hospital in Jefferson City for care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Travion Newberry and Melaney Smith at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Car Accidents in Missouri
Thousands of motorists are involved in collisions throughout the state of Missouri each year. Although not all accidents end in catastrophic injuries, a fair share of these accidents do force victims into area hospitals. In many cases, people who are involved in motor vehicle accidents in our state sustain broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and various other life-changing injuries that require extensive medical treatment. The truth is that motor vehicle collisions impact more than just the mental and physical health and wellbeing of victims. Not only are accidents overwhelmingly painful, but they can be financially draining as well.
Many people hurt in accidents require hospitalization and have to spend weeks or even months off work as they go through therapy and transition back into their normal routine. Regrettably, many injured parties never recover from their injuries and are left permanently disabled and out of work. When victims are injured in accidents as a result of other drivers, it is important that they seek the legal guidance of a Vienna car accident attorney as soon as possible.
