Warrensburg, MO (November 7, 2021) – An auto accident reported in Johnson County left three people injured. At around 9:20 p.m., on November 5, emergency crews were notified that their assistance was needed on-site at a collision on Missouri State Route 13.
Reports from local authorities indicate that a 2012 Chevrolet Impala was traveling on the southbound side of Missouri State Route 13 when it slowed down just south of Route H to avoid a collision with a deer.
A 2009 Dodge Caliber was approaching the rear of the Chevrolet but was unable to stop in time to avoid a collision. As a result, the Dodge crashed into the rear of the Chevrolet.
Both vehicles were left with extensive damage from the crash.
The driver of the Chevrolet, 22-year-old David Bliss, the driver of the Dodge, 32-year-old Jeremy Duensing, and a passenger in the Dodge, 23-year-old Megan Finkelstein, were all injured in the accident.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Megan Finkelstein, David Bliss, and Jeremy Duensing at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Car Accidents in Missouri
According to reports provided by the Missouri State Department of Public Safety, more than 55,000 people are injured in auto accidents throughout our state each year. Although many accidents resolve with only minor injuries, thousands of people are hospitalized with life-threatening injuries that require emergency and ongoing care.
Not being able to work while being overwhelmed with tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills not only impacts victims but their families as well. It does not seem right that victims who are injured in accidents as a result of the actions of others are forced to spend substantial amounts of money on treatment.
When victims are injured in accidents, those harmed are able to pursue legal actions to obtain compensation to cover the financial burdens they face moving forward. Working with a knowledgeable and aggressive car accident attorney in the Warrensburg area after your accident can greatly improve your chances of recovering.
